The people making it possible

Nordic Light is lucky to have many supporters. We do not have the time (or enough space) to mention all of them, so to everyone helping us along (and especially our amazing audience!), making this possible: Thank you very much!

Although we can not mention everyone, there are some people we want to give some extra attention, this is our sponsors and collaborators, our creative board, and our volunteers. You can find more information about them further down on this page.


Our sponsors and collaborators

Without our sponsors and collaborators, it would be impossible to make our festival a reality. We are truly grateful to all our sponsors, collaborators and supporters. Thank you!
