Winner Best Nordic project
The film was presented during Finnish Film Affair where it took home the top prize for best upcoming Nordic project. In regard to the award, Ingolfsdottir stated to Variety "the film is based on first-hand experience, but is less a break-up drama than an exploration of how an individual or a couple arrives at a seeming point of no return."

Maria must come to terms with herself when her husband says that he wants a divorce.
An interpersonal film about a break-up, but also a woman´s opportunity for self-knowledge, growth and having to deal with unconscious and dysfunctional patterns in herself.

LOVEABLE is directed and written by Lilja Ingolfsdottir, produced by Thomas Robsahm for Nordisk Film Production A/S and Amarcord with support from the Norwegian Film Institute and Nordisk Film & TV Fond. Local distribution by Nordisk Film Distribution. International sales handled by TrustNordisk.

Loveable will release locally on 11 October 2024.
Screening link will soon be available for interested buyers.
