To check the nominees in all the categories go here.

Not very often I get the opportunity to watch Norwegian films but I believe that there are some quite interesting films with nominations. I’ll try to find trailers.

As soon as the NIFF lists the films in each program I will post them; the fest runs this year from August 20 to 27.
