Søren Pagter was a part of a panel debate about the picture of the year in the three countries Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

A lot of DMJX-students had found their way to the festival, where they spent the weekend working as volunteers and participating in the lectures.

The Norwegian graduate students held an exhibition and book release, where they presented their final BA-stories. Each year the Norwegian students create a book with their final stories in.
