Films from the North is TIFF’s program for shorts and documentaries from the Barents region and other circumpolar areas. Films are qualified as long as the subject, the production or the director, has a strong connection to the northern regions of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia or Canada.

The program is a very popular sidebar at the festival. With 4184 tickets sold in 2016, Films from the North makes TIFF the largest audience festival for shorts in Norway.   


Featuring 32 films and 82 screenings the festival is now bigger than ever before. The festival is arranged by TIFF in collaboration with Aurora Kino, and all screenings takes place at Verdensteatret and Aurora kino Fokus.
