Seventy percent of the films screening at the 37th Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund (August 20-27) are of European origin, an absolute record for programme artistic director Håkon Skogrand. “It is marvellous to be able to present the strongest European programme ever. As many as 50 of the 70 feature films in the official programme come from our own part of the world,” he said.
These include the 2009 Cannes Palme d’Or The White Ribbon [trailer] (to be released by Arthaus in Norway) and Grand Prix winner A Prophet [trailer, film focus] (Walt Disney Studios Norway).
