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.

Critics' Weeks

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!

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.

Off screen

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

Winter Cinema - Kids

Free morning screenings for kindergarten and school children at TIFF's outdoor cinema.
