3 Norwegian films on the move Norwegian films enter 2012 in a very privileged position with a record breaking 24,5% national market share in 2011, close to 40 new cinema releases and more than 2,8 million tickets sold. For the first time, the success was also reflected in international sales. No wonder we have high expectations for the upcoming year! Although there is a substantial reduction in new releases for 2012, the diversity in expressions and genre is great. The ambition of delivering documentaries on an international level has resulted in a particularly strong list in this area. The year opens with an international documentary, Back to the Square, about what happened after the Egyptian Revolution, directed by Petr Lom. Kari Anne Moe s Bravehearts, a documentary about what happened to four politically engaged youth after the terror of 22nd July in Oslo and Utøya and Hans Petter Moland s documentary When Bubbles Burst, about the globalized economy and present financial crisis should also have an international audience. The last few years, Norwegian genre films have made their mark internationally with Dead Snow, Cold Prey and The Troll Hunter leading the pack. This year the films go deeper into Norwegian mythology and history with tales of witch burnings, the Black Death, the Devil himself and other mythical creatures from the Norwegian wilderness. Expect the unexpected in Dunderland, directed by Finn-Erik Rognan and Nils J. Nesse, Veil of Twilight, directed by Paul Magnus Lundø, Escape by Cold Prey director Roar Uthaug and Thale, by Aleksander Nordaas. The Max Manus directors Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg will open the fall season with Kon-Tiki and the story about Thor Heyerdahl s well known expedition across the Pacific Ocean on the primitive Kon-Tiki raft. After receiving critical acclaim for her films Kissed by Winter and Upperdog, Sara Johnsen also returns with a strong Nordic cast in the dramatic All That Matters is Past. In 90 Minutes, Cold Lunch director, Eva Sørhaug, reflects upon what happens the last minutes before a person commits murder. With their strong track record with short films, both Hisham Zaman and Dag Johan Haugerud are directing there first full length features with 5152 Kilometers to Heaven and I Belong. And finally, before Christmas, children can look forward to the spectacular remake of the Norwegian classic The Journey to the Christmas Star, a fairytale directed by Nils Gaup. And wishing upon that star, we can look forward to 2013, with exciting titles like Victoria, Torun Lian s film based on the world famous novel by Knut Hamsun, two full length animated children s films and much, much more. Norwegian films are definitely on the move! Nina Refseth CEO The Norwegian Film Institute Stine Helgeland Executive Director, Promotions and International Relations Norwegian nature also plays an important part in Petter Næss war drama Into the White, where German and British soldiers have to survive in the Norwegian mountains together in a small cottage. Family life can also be troublesome, as we will see in Company Orheim, the third and darker part of the story of Jarle Klepp, directed by Arild Andersen. preface 1
