The Norwegian Short Film Festival 2021


The 44th Short Film Festival in Grimstad.

09 - 13 June The Norwegian Short Film Festival will be held for the 44th consecutive year! The Norwegian Short Film Festival is an important debut arena for many young filmmakers in Norway, and for the more established filmmakers perhaps the most important showcase for free and independent movies in Norway. The competition for international short film also attracts filmmakers from the rest of the world to Grimstad, and the festival wishes to arrange for bonds to be tied between the Norwegian and the international film community.

As usual, the festival will feature the best short films, short documentaries and music videos from Norway and abroad, as well as seminars, debates, masterclasses and more.

Despite the uncertainty of the Covid-situation, the Short Film Festival is planning to give the audience that real festival feeling and a the possibility of meeting in a safe environment. This year's festival will therefore be arranged in three different steps: 

1 - Locally

There wil be local viewings on selected cinemas around Norway where restrictions will be in place for you to enjoy the program in a safe environment. A full list of the places there will be viewings will be announced soon. 

2 - Digitally The digital success from last year is repeating itself. Available for everyone in Norway, you will be able to stream the whole program including extra material and conversations with the filmmakers, all from your own couch. 

3 - Gathering of the filmmakers in Grimstad 

The filmmakers in the competition program will be able to gather in Grimstad for workshops, director talks and networking. The Short Film Festival is hoping to be able to once again hand out this year's Golden Chair in the southern town of Grimstad, where the festival belongs. 

The films submitted to both the Norwegian and international competitions are discussed during daily participant gatherings.
