The Norwegian International Film Festival is a well-established festival that celebrates its 42th year in 2014. The festival showcases the best of Norwegian and international movies, most of which have been distributed in Norway – but also a limited number of foreign films that are of interest to a Scandinavian audience.

The selection of films is carried out in close cooperation with Scandinavian distributors and Nordic sales agents. The renowned Norwegian actress and director Liv Ullman is the festival’s Honorary President.
