Fall is slowly arriving and it’s soon that time of the year again, you know – that time when all you want is to escape into a movie theatre. Film fra Sør is the perfect escape from everyday life.
Film fra Sør (films from the south) is an annual film festival focusing on world cinema. From contemporary Iranian to classic Japanese films, this festival showcases a wide selection from all parts of the globe.
This year the festival runs from October 9th to 19th. The festival’s main hub is Filmens Hus, but screenings are also scheduled for Saga, Ringen and Klingenberg Kino.
The programme is yet to be released, but it always contains at least a dozen must see films. Some of the screenings will include a Q&A session, so make sure you read the small print of the program to see which directors and actors are attending the festival. And if there are a lot of films you want to see, a festival pass might be the way to go in order to save a few kroner.
Film fra Sør is most definitely the best way to sample world cinema in Oslo, and during that dark and wet month that is October – heading into a dark venue, being transported to other parts of the globe, is certainly not the worst thing.
