Velkommen til Oslo Film Festival! / Welcome to Oslo Film Festival, an IMDb-listed event!

Oslo Film Festival bids you welcome to our yearly festival in the heart of Oslo. Known for our famous mountains, excruciatingly cold weather, and delicious waffles, we look forward to seeing faces from all over the world attend our warm, friendly and diverse film festival.

OFF is run in association with Close:Up, a collection of international film festivals supporting indie filmmaking. By establishing a working network among filmmakers, producers and marketing professionals, we share one common goal: to forge productive and lasting relationships between independent filmmakers and audiences.

As an international and independent film festival and therefore we accept submissions of all genres. To encourage our youth, we have opened several affordable categories only applicable for students.

Press will be invited to our next event where we will also film and conduct Q&A interviews with the filmmakers.
Additionally, we will be facilitating a short filmmaker round table with local industry professionals on the topic of Distribution for Independent Films.

We offer two types of submission rates. The standard categories which include Best Feature, Best Short, Best Documentary etc. and add-on categories (such as Best Director, Best Producer etc.) which come at a fixed price of $10.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us or follow us on Facebook and our website.

We look forward to reviewing your work and seeing you in Oslo!
