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.

Focus: Brazil

Spanning from everyday life drama and bittersweet comedy to crime and biting (sic) satire, FOCUS: BRAZIL spotlights tendencies in the Brazilian society that reach far beyond the country's borders; political polarization, vast economic differences and distrust between political wings, economic classes and ethnic groups.

Cold War, Moving Pictures

There were spies before the Cold War, and there have been spies after, but films from that era were defining for how we perceive espionage and surveillance and the gathering of intelligence. This is a selecion of hidden spy gems from behind The Curtain, and a few of their western counterparts.

Arabiyat

Arabiyat – the Arab word for Arab women – is also the name of a year-long project currently in progress at Cinémàtheque de Tanger. It includes film screenings, meetings and debates that address crucial issues, making them visible and audible in the public sphere. This program hopes to inform and inspire young (as well as not so young) Arab women on the path to change. For others, it offers a new perspective into the lives of Arab women.

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.

Critics' choice

TIFF and the Norwegian Film Critics' Association are pleased to present five films chosen by Norwegian and foreign film critics. The selection is based on the critics' personal preference. The sidebar also includes four Norwegian feature films from 2018, selected by TIFF and the film website Montages. Please note that introductions by Norwegian critics will be held in Norwegian.

Special Screenings

This sidebar offers a range of unique film experiences: our outdoor Winter Cinema program, film concerts and of course a sing-along screening!

Films from the North

The best of new shorts, documentaries and feature films made in the Barents region and other circumpolar areas. The Tromsø Palm is awarded the best short film in competition. 

Off screen

Seminars and other events for Film industry and audiences during the festival.
