- Des favoris des festivals de classe A, les Amanda du cinéma norvégien et, enfin !, le film sur A-ha : tout cela fait partie du plan A du plus grand festival de cinéma de Norvège

Haugesund dévoile le programme de son édition 2021
Margrete – Queen of the North de Charlotte Sieling

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

As August 2020 saw increasing infection rates, travel restrictions and quarantine rules, the Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund resorted to its plan B. Luckily, the team had a good one, adapted for digital solutions and even with a hand-picked physical audience for the national Amanda Awards ceremony (the winners, basically). This year’s edition (running from 21-27 August), the 49th since it started in 1972, promises a real return to form. Plan A has A-list festival favourites, and myriad audience and industry attendees. Almost business as usual.
