The Norwegian Film Collection is a collection of DVDs and Blu-rays with recently released Norwegian feature films, short films, and documentaries for Norwegian foreign service missions, embassies, consulates, and representatives to lend to EU film festivals and other local, non-commercial film events.
The films in the collection are suited for public film screening.
The Norwegian Film Collection 2021 is a follow-up edition of the Norwegian Film Collection, 2019, 2017 and 2015 and Norwegian Embassy Film Collection 2012-2013. The Film Collection is an important tool in building international recognition for Norwegian film. In the long run, it will lead to greater demand and expanded international sales and distribution opportunities.
The package consists of newer Norwegian feature films, short films, and documentaries; all subtitled into 11 languages (Norwegian, English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Portuguese/Brazilian, Arabic, Russian and simplified Mandarin). With the exception of archive films, all films are made available on Blu-ray as well as DVD (NTSC and PAL formats). Among the feature and short films are some aimed at children and youth.
Use of the collection
The Film Collection is produced by the Norwegian Film Institute (NFI) with support from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and should be handled locally by Norwegian foreign service missions. The missions’ task is to find good venues where the films in the package can be disseminated, particularly in areas with no major international film festival. This can be done in the framework of a film-centred cultural event (such as an EU Film Festival) or in individual screenings.
