Polar film festival in Tromsø
  • General public
The Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF) received support from IPY to put together a special polar film programme. Launched in 1991, TIFF is now Norway’s largest film festival.

The festival is held each January, and polar film was the main focus in 2008. In summer 2007 TIFF got an early start on celebrating polar film by holding screenings at the Nordic Youth Film Festival, the Verdensteatret cinema and the silent film festival in Tromsø. Historical polar films, Norwegian feature films, international feature films and documentaries, and short films were shown.
