January 13-19 2020

- These was some of the films that were first sold out, where the audience has been asking for extra screeenings. We are delighted to set up extra screening of each of the films on Monday, January 20th, says festival manager Lisa Hoen.

We proudly present this year's winners of TIFF's own Aurora Prize, the international critics award Fipresci and the Don Quijote award which is awarded by the International Film Club FICC, The Tromsø Palm for the best film in the Films From the North programme, and The Faith in Film Award, The Norwegian Peace FIlm Award – and of course the Tromsø Audience Award.



Tradition we end the festival by offering those who have not yet been part of the film festival free festival bracelets on Sunday. This year we want to give more to the audience, which means we go one step further.

-We distribute festival bracelets free of charge at all entrances at all screening venues, both Sunday and Monday, as we want to give something extra to the audience this year, says festival director Lisa Hoen.

This year's official closing party is at Storgata Camping (close to Driv and Hålogaland Teater) We have karaoke from Storagata Karaoke, a VR stand in collaboration with Tvibit and SEEK and special TIFF discount at Storgata Camping's minigolf course. Sunn Moro Fun Studio & La Hora Loca is also at the party with their photo boot.

The reality of climate change has been looming over us for decades. In fact, as soon as the 1960s, scientists started warning that human emissions of greenhouse gases were causing global warming, a phenomenon which would have serious consequences in coming decades. But surprisingly, it is only recently that the majority of the scientific community and the general public have become concerned about the very real effects of climate change on our world. 


On Friday, January 3, several of #TIFF20's films were presented and discussed at the program presentation. On Monday, January 6, the tickets for the various movie screenings will be released - here you'll find the full schedule for #TIFF20.
