The official sweater pattern is designed by Heidi Sunde, and yarn and pattern can be purchased for a special discount at the store Bundingen at Jekta shopping mall in Tromsø.
– We encourage all knitters to use the the official #tiffstrikk hashtag, and post photos of their TIFF sweater projects on Instagram and other social medias, says festival Director Martha Otte.
The festival in January will even feature a special screening for audience in TIFF sweaters.
Chaplin's iconic character «The Tramp» has it's 100 year anniversary this year, an event celebrated all over the world. Silent Film Days in Tromsø will naturally take part in the celebration, and puts on an evening dedicated to the great Master.
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.
