Screenwave International Film Festival opens with The Northman

The full SWIFF 22 program has been announced, with The Northman leading the charge and new Aussie films blazing through.

Screenwave International Film Festival (SWIFF) has unveiled its 2022 program, which includes more than 130 sessions and exclusive events for the Coffs Harbour cinephile community.

Most notably, the film’s opening night screening of The Northman will be one of the first Australian showings of Robert Eggers’ (The Lighthouse, The Witch) latest film. The Northman is set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century, and centres on a Nordic prince who seeks revenge for the death of his father.
