TIFF 2017 concluded
The main Award, Aurora, went to Anne Rose Holmer for her thrilling debut THE FITS. Non-statuary FIPRESCI and Don Quixote Awards were given to BACALAUREAT by Cristian Mungiu and HEARTSTONE by Guðmundur A Guðmundsson respectively.
Palme d’Or winner Cristian Mungiu also grazed the festival with an excellent Master Class, talking in depth about his work with actors, how he works with passing of time in his films, and more.
Among other highlights were the film concert with new music performed live to Nils Gaup’s 30 year-old classic PATHFINDER. We were also honoured to be visited by several Turkish Directors in connection with our special focus on Turkey in the program.
We want to thank all visiting directors and everyone who participated in making the 27th edition special! Remember to save to the dates: The 28. Tromsø International Film Festival will take place January 15-21, 2018. Welcome back!
