Nordic Factory is a Residency, Workshop and Short Film Concept that stimulates cultural and cinematic meetings between young film directors, while giving them an international platform to present their first or second feature projects. This concept continues and builds on an initial, successful collaboration in 2013 between Directors’ Fortnight and the Taipei Film Commission, and will continue in 2015 with a new partner country.
