Films from the North is Tromsø International Film Festival’s program for films from the Barents Region and other circumpolar areas.

The sidebar has traditionally been reserved for shorts and documentaries and has been tremendously popular, with more than 4000 tickets sold annually. At the 2019 edition we also accepted feature length films into the program, as this format has become more and more common in the regional production. Shorts and docs will, however, still play an important part in the program.

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.

Tromsøpalmen is awarded to the best short or documentary in competition, along with a prize of 5000 Euro to the film’s director.

Films from the North should draw attention to the increasing media activity in the High North and stimulate its growth. Our goal is to be the most important venue for films of all formats from the Northern periphery.
