NTFF 2014 Press Release 2

NTFF- Global Platform of Tamil Cinema  

Tamil Peoples spread across countries; film opens a window onto new worlds, demonstrates the promise of new possibilities, and gives expression to different ways of thinking, all the while confirming our shared stories and common humanity. In 2013, we presented 15 feature films, also 5 feature-length documentaries, and 10 short subject, 10 music videos and 5 animations films in Norway.  A standard of excellence in the world of film and a true symbol of discovery.

When we started the Norway Tamil Film Festival 4 years ago, we had one simple goal: to introduce Norway (Europe) and the world to new filmmakers, new stories and new points of view. We've got Tamilnadus leading directors, actors, actress, and musicians in Norway during our last 4 Film festival and wish to continue the same in upcoming years.  Last year we’re proud to say we held fast to that mission as strongly as ever by showcasing best talents in Norway to Tamil film industry as well. It's important to us that we're always learning, always exploring, and always seeing the world in new ways.
