Henrik Martin Dahlsbakken

Henrik Martin Dahlsbakken (b. 1989) grew up in Hamar, and has studied media science in Norway and the UK. He is a self-taught filmmaker and trained cinema projectionist. Dahlsbakken has made several short films using 8mm, S16mm, 35mm and 65mm film techniques, and cultivates the analog idiom in the creative process. His greatest success thus far has been the short film The Devil’s Ballroom (2012), which won awards at multiple festivals around the world. Dahlsbakken's first feature film, Returning Home (Å vende tilbake), premiered in 2015 at the Rome Film Fest and was shortlisted as the Norwegian Oscar candidate for best foreign language film.
