ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Norwegian Short Film Festival is a short film and short documentary festival with a competition programme for Norwegian and International short film, short docs and Norwegian music videos.
In addition to the award programmes, we present international documentaries, arrange work-shops and seminars, concerts, boat trips and many other interesting film programmes.
The Norwegian Short Film Festival is an important debut arena for many young filmmakers in Norway, and for the more established filmmakers perhaps the most important showcase for free and independent films. The competition programme for international short films attracts filmmakers from the rest of the world to Grimstad, and the festival facilitates for bonds to be tied between the Norwegian and the international film community. The films from both the Norwegian and international competitions are discussed during daily participant gatherings.
