Göteborg Film Festival has unveiled the first Nordic Prize for Best Script. 
The new award, to be presented on February 2, 2017, is called Nordisk Film & TV Fond Prize, and is worth 200,000 SEK. In recent years, the Nordic countries have become one of the most engaging regions for TV drama series. The prize has been founded in cooperation with Nordisk Film & TV Fond, who is also funding the prize. The nominated TV series will be made public in conjunction with the festival’s program release on January 10, 2017. An international jury that will be presented in the middle of December will decide which series wins first prize.
