As always the festival will program extra screenings of some of the most popular titles on the Monday following the festival week.
There are ordinary ticket sales for these screenings. Those who do not have a festival wristband will receive one for free at Verdensteatret. Normal rules apply for industry badge holders.
The program on Monday January 20 is as follows:
15.00 THE TALE OF IYA
19.00 I STOP TIME
As tradition goes we like to end the festival by offering those who still haven't taken part of TIFF free festival wristbands on Sunday.
The wristbands will be handed out at our ticket counters or our information desk at Aurora kino Fokus when you purchase your first ticket.

The program starts at 14.00. Fruit, snacks and organic hot chocolate is served. The Family Day is also a kick-off for TIFF's children's film festival Verdens Beste, which takes place May 8-11, 2014. Before the outdoor opening, program starts, the Kulturskolen orchestra plays a concert of film music at Tromso Public Library at 12.00.
The film will be screened at Fokus 5 Friday at 10am and at Fokus 2 Sunday at 6pm. NYMPHOMANIAC lasts for 4 hours and will have a 20 minute intermission. The film is in English with Norwegian subtitles
NYMPHOMANIAC is in the online program under Special Screenings, but is not visible in the calendar view of the program. Tickets may be purchased online from the film article or in the ticket counters. Accreditation quota as normal.
Fokus 2 was sold out for the Films from the North Opening Night on Tuesday. Three selected films from the program were screened: UNSPOKEN by Torfinn Iversen, AMAZON by Marianne Ulrichsen and GOOD MACHINE GUN SOUND by Truls Krane Meby.
Meby found reason to smile even before the screening began when he was awarded the first prize of this year's festival. The North Norwegian Film Center present their award "The Rookie" ("Skårungen") annualy at TIFF and the 2014 prize was presented to the 27 year old Meby.
Hundreds of children from schools and kindergardens showed up for the official opening, which was conducted by Mayor of Tromsø Jens Johan Hjort and festival director Martha Otte.
The outdoor cinema has for many years been one of the most popular traditions of the film festival. It lets everyone know that the festival is well under way, with daily film screenings for both young and older audiences in the middle of the city.
This year's opening film is the Swedish drama NOBODY OWNS ME by director Kjell-Åke Andersson, starring Mikael Persbrandt.
The project NN+ brings the music and film industry together. One year ago five artists and bands from Northern Norway each received 200.000 NOK in support from NN+ in order to produce and promote a music video. Several directors pitched ideas for the videos, connections were made, and now the videos will get their premiere at the festival.
After the premiere screening at Fokus 1, all the acts (Hekla Stålstrenga, Cyaneed, Violet Road, Eline Thorp and Elle Márjá Eira) will perform live at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Thursday at 7pm.
