Nordisk Panorama is a festival for nordic countries and is held every year in Malmö, Sweden. Among the categories Best Nordic short and Best Nordic documentary there is also a category of Best New Nordic Voice. This year the award for Best Nordic New Voice in short film was given to Heta Jäälinoja for her film Penelope.
“Speechless and with seemingly simple pencil lines, the film creates a timeless and limitless universe. The film is distinct and highly amusing, about a character coping with daily life. Home is not a prison, but life can be a mess.”
Heta Jäälinoja has graduated from Turku Arts Academy and she continued her studies in Estonian Academy of Arts and graduated there as Master of Arts ( animation).
