Come to Grimstad this summer!
A great place for fun in the sun, old and new friends and lots of exciting short films and events!
Whether or not you have a film in competition or a special program, Grimstad is a great place for filmmakers, distributors and programmers, and just lovers of short film in general! We have something for all, both established and completely new to the game: Shorts from all over the world, talks with filmmakers, seminars, panels, and parties. Being such a small charming town, Grimstad is perfect to get to know your fellow festival participants. It’s easy to keep bumping into the same people at the festival area, in the streets or on the shrimp boat that sails every day for our guests. Where else could you end up having a beer with programmers from South by Southwest or Sundance Film Festival?
If you have a film in competition or a special program, we’d love to have you come talk about your film. If you are not able, another key person from the film is welcome to have the accreditation you get.
Grimstad is a gem of the south coast of Norway, and though a small town, it has many charming options for accommodation. The closes airport is in Kristiansand (Kjevik), and we can help with transport to and from Grimstad. One could also take a train or bus from Oslo or other places. Our Guest Coordinator Vanja Ødegård is able to assist with travel and accommodation logistics should you wish to join us this summer (firstname.lastname@example.org / tlf. 00 47 22 47 46 46).
