Norwegian Horizons

TIFF proudly presents "Norwegian Horizons", our programme dedicated solely to Norwegian filmmaking. This programme includes six wonderful feature films, all of which reflect the festival's profile and themes. Every film is engaged in the world around us globally and their characters come from diverse backgrounds and places.

Horizons

Horizons features a selection of high quality films in different genres and styles, and from all over the world. The only criteria here is quality.

Horizon East

In the spirit of the historically close ties between Tromsø and our neighbors in the East, Tromsø International Film Festival aims to promote cultural exchange between our countries by presenting new films from the northeast. Starting with a selection of officially produced Soviet films at the very first TIFF edition in 1991, we have continued to present a selection of titles from the region that otherwise would not be screened in Norwegian cinemas. Since 2002, Horizon East has been a regular sidebar for feature films and documentaries from Russia, Finland, and the Baltic states.

Sápmi 100

Tromsø International Film Festival is proud to celebrate an important event in the history of the Sámi people. The first national convention in Tråante (Trondheim) February 6-9, 1917, was a giant leap forward in expressing a united Sámi identity, and has since become the foundation of the Sámi National Day. For this 100 year-anniversary program, we have selected four films. They are all important films in the Sámi canon, and great examples of films that tell the story of the Sami people.

Focus: Turkey

The films in this specially curated selection are plucked from the past year’s film crop from Turkey.  With only one exception, these are first features; the remaining title is the director’s second film.

More than a simple assessment of the talent pool on hand in Turkish cinema today, the hope is that this selection will in sum impart a sense of the complex nature of Turkish identity. The current political situation in Turkey is not directly a theme in any of these films, but together they are somehow a report from the front.

Retrospective: Cristian Mungiu

At TIFF 2017 we will be presenting a retrospective of Cristian Mungiu's feature length films, including the omnibus film consisting of six short stories, TALES FROM THE GOLDEN AGE (2009).

Overdrive

As the name indicates, these films are set in overdrive: they are a bit rougher, crazier, absurd – and in some cases a bit sicker than the average festival film. So buckle up, and hang on for your life.
