We show both narrative films and work from within the moving image; video art, experimental film and time-based installations and sculptures.

  • The narrative films we show will mainly be new and older international art house movies; critically acclaimed feature films and documentaries, for adults, children and youths. More popular films will also be shown.  Northern Norwegian and film from the rest of the Arctic will also be shown. All films are chosen on the grounds of being of artistic and/or social importance.
  • The works within the moving image will consist of both norwegian and international works. Most of them will be shown in the cinema, but some will also be shown outdoors in the town centre. Several curators are involved in the programming of these works.



The experienced workshop leader Ed Webb-Ingall from the UK, will run a morning seminar Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning 10 - 12.30, responding especially to the moving image section of the festival.



Two panel discussions are planned for the festival, one on Saturday evening, and one on Sunday daytime. More information will come.



This is a popular local monthly food and arthouse film event, that you will be able to experience at the festival. Food related to the film is served in the same room as the film is shown, on stylish restaurant tables, and there is a bar in the room. The films will have an interesting introduction.
