Norwegian International Film Festival receives many inquiries about what the upcoming edition will look like, and whether there will be any festival on August 14-21 at all. We are monitoring the situation closely, and are currently working towards a festival in much the same way as before. The Norwegian government has announced an update in the beginning of May on the current assembly ban, and we hope this will clarify our possibility to organize the 48th edition of our festival as well. We are also looking at various digital solutions that can both enrich the festival, and at the same time be a valuable addition to our industry participants who for various reasons cannot make the trip to Norway and Haugesund. This will especially apply to the festival’s international market New Nordic Films.
In the meantime, we hope you all are well and follow all good advice, and we look forward to seeing you in August!
