Renowned documentarist Olin will be interviewed by Festival Director Martha Otte in front of the audience at Verdensteatret. DOING GOOD is her new documentary about the famous Norwegian "healer" Jordalf Gjerstad. Throughout the last 65 years more than 50.000 people have travelled to the small town Snåsa, in hope of getting help from Gjerstad.

The event starts at 7pm, has free entrance and is open for all audiences.


The silent film concert had its premiere at TIFF 2015 in front of a sold out Verdensteatret Cinema. The week before the premiere two Norwegian and two Russian musicians  worked day and night composing and rehearsing the score for the film. Ola Asdahl Rokkones (saxophone), Andrei Kondakov (piano), Jakop Janssønn (drums) and Vladimir Volkov (double bass) are performing the jazz influenced soundtrack live as the film is screened. This makes each show unique, with a real time interplay between the musicians playing, the film on the screen and the audience.

This is the fourth annual year Tromsø International film Festival brings northern shorts on the road to Russia. The project is supported by BarentsKult.

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.
