Don't miss these films on the last days of the festival
The last days of the festival is approaching, but there is still time to watch great films.
The Japanese film MONSTER by master director Hirokazu Koreeda and THE PERSIAN VERSION by the Iranian-American Maryam Keshavarz have been popular with sold out screenings. You have the opportunity to watch both on the big screen this weekend. MONSTER is screened Saturday 20:15 at Vika 1 and THE PERSIAN VERSION is screened 17:00 at Vika 1.
From today's screenings we recommend MOVING, a gripping coming-of-age drama in which the children's perspective is translated with a charming visual language.
Colourful CASSANDRO, with the Mexican superstar Gael Garcia Bernal in the lead role is also a wonderful film experience.
Also worth experiencing today is the West African festive evening, an exciting evening with film and music. There, this year's guest of honour Moussa Sene Absa will be awarded an honorary award by program manager Lasse Skagen.
