(Norden is the name of the area in all scandinavian languages) (The two other: Norðurlandaþjóðir/Pohjoismaat)
Goal: Watch as many movies from the Nordic countries and autonomous territories as you can (or want).
Eligible countries and territories
- A feature film (Anything over 40 minutes) counts as one entry.
- A total of 60 minutes of short films count as one entry.
- For Mini-Series or tv shows the 120 minutes rule applies - regardless of episode length. (The reason for the expansion is to not give the locals too much advantage since we can access everything the broadcasters have ever made for free - TV licence for the win!)
- Rewatches are welcome, but do explore something outside og Bergman, Kaurismäki, von Trier and Dreyer.
- You have to post year of release. If you don't I will not count them in the challenge. (The reason for this is to figure it what movie it is, particularly as many of you will use aka titles)
- Please post original title (and aka if you want).
- Please post country/countries.

The 2010s list is not completely updated as titles are missing from imdb.
If you find co-productions on imdb that aren't on these lists (like Zwei Leiben (2012)) then they are not eligble. The Snowman and The two american Millenium movies are not eligible either.

I have only checked and updated the official lists, so give me a heads up if something else is oooold.
Movies that count for all challenges:
Iceland was clearly least viewed country last time so for the bonus challenge, just watch movies from from Iceland
We have held this once before (with only Nordic) the highest score is so far 160 points. There has also been a couple of times they have shared the glory with Benelux, but those score are kept seperate, but I will add those movies from those challenges to the all time views list.
