Support for the development of documentary films

The list of Fritt Ord's ordinary grants (applications for NOK 100 000 or less) in December 2017 has now been posted.


Among the 70 projects on the list, we find 8 grants for the development of new documentary films. For example, Scene Midt, represented by Marte Hallem, received NOK 100 000 for the development of the documentary "Finnkjerringa" (the Old Forest Finn Woman). The film is described as "an individual, documentary journey into the Forest Finns' culture and history".

Aldeles AS and film-maker Amir Ajdinovic received NOK 100 000 for the development of the documentary film "The Universe is My Selfie", while Koko Film, represented by director and producer Trude Berge Ottersen, received NOK 75 000 for the development of the documentary "The Warriors on the Swan".
