Hundreds of kids were gathered at Tromsø's main square when the Winter Cinema opened Tuesday morning.
Festival director Martha Otte welcomed the audience and Tromsø Mayor Jens Johan Hjort conducted the official opening of the Winter Cinema. Singer Agnete Johnsen, soon to be featured as Dorothy in Hålogaland Theatre's production of "The Wizard of Oz", paid a visit and performed one of the songs from the play.
- Freedom of speech is something we as an international film festival value very high. It is the foundation of everything we seek to do. Our role is to be a window to the world and sadly there is urgent need for us and other festivals to fill that role now, after the terrorist attack in France, says Festival Director Martha Otte at Tromsø International Film Festival.
The scheduled program of screenings and venues will soon be available in the program section here at tiff.no. You will then be able to bookmark films and create your own program using My festival.
