Oslo film festival

Founded in 2017, the Oslo Film Festival has been taking place annually, in physical locations and online during the Covid-19 quarantine. Aiming to bring the best independent films to the heart of the Norwegian capital, OFF accepts submissions of all genres and from all walks of life. Among our top priorities is to encourage young aspiring filmmakers to follow their dream. Therefore, we have opened several affordable categories only applicable to students.

We always host our Festivals in local cinemas and multicultural spaces, supporting the city’s historical venues while creating events that are accessible to all. Our screening categories span a wide range including shorts and feature films, documentaries, animations and music videos.

The Oslo Film Festival is organised by HFP, a pioneer organisation that runs Film Festivals and other events showcasing and championing ideas of diversity. Through our global series of film Festivals that spread over 13 countries, we open the path to voices with a compelling story to share. Our main mission is to honour independent cinema and establish a network of artists eager to join forces and spread their work across all nations. HF runs 25 film Festivals worldwide.
