Competition: Win Acclaimed Scandinavian Dramas On DVD With The Hunt

By Sam Bathe on 29 Nov 2012

The lucky winner will get their hands on Seasons 1 and 2 of The Killing, and the first seasons of both The Bridge, and Borgen – three Danish dramas that have all won acclaim on British screens.

Directed by Thomas Vinterberg – co-founder of the Dogme movement alongside Lars von Trier, and director of the award-winning international hit FestenThe Hunt won the Best Actor prize (Mads Mikkelsen), as well as the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury (Thomas Vinterberg) and the Vulcain Prize for Technical Artist (to Director of Photography Charlotte Bruus Christensen) at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where it screened to critical acclaim In Competition.
