MIDSUMMER NIGHT by Jonas Selberg Augustsén won The Tromsø Palm at TIFF 2017.
Tromsø International Film Festival invites short and documentary films to participate in the sidebar FILMS FROM THE NORTH. Submission deadline is October 20th.
Films from the North is TIFF’s program for shorts and documentaries from the Barents region and other circumpolar areas. Films are qualified as long as the subject, the production or the director, has a strong connection to the northern regions of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia or Canada.
The program is a very popular sidebar at the festival. With 4459 tickets sold in 2017, Films from the North makes TIFF the largest audience festival for shorts in Norway.
The Tromsø Palm (Tromsøpalmen) is awarded to the best film in competition, along with a prize of 5000 Euro to the film’s director.
