THE 25TH FILMS FROM THE SOUTH FESTIVAL IS TAKING PLACE IN OSLO THIS OCTOBER. ONE OF THE ATTRACTIONS IS THE FIRST TIME SCREENING OF THE IRAQI/NORWEGIAN FEATURE FILM EL CLáSICO.

Writer, director and producer Halkawt Mustafa has made a unique roadmovie of humour and drama, taking us from Iraq to Spain. El Clásico is the term describing a football match between the fierce enemies Real Madrid and Barcelona. This match is also the end of a journey in a film about the most important things in life: Love, football and Ronaldo’s shoes.

The film is excellent shot by Kjell Vassdal, edited by Inge-Lise Langfeldt and Trond Bjerknes has composed the music. Sound design by Bahman Ardalan, Studio Bahman in Teheran.

Post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus. Colour grading, VFX and online by Haavard Albertsen, additional online work by Bengt Ove Sannes and Mathias Theissen. The world premiere of El Clásico is at the Dubai International Film Festival in December, as part of the Official Selection program. DIFF presents more than120 features, short films and documentaries from the Arab world and beyond. Take a look at the El Clásico trailer, edited by Ove Kenneth Nilsen, online by Mathias Theissen and sound design by Erik Ljunggren.

GET IS A LEADING FIBRE-BASED BROADBAND PROVIDER IN NORWAY, WITH A NETWORK STRETCHING FROM HAMMERFEST IN THE NORTH TO KRISTIANSAND IN THE SOUTH.

In their latest campaign produced by Small Film, two short films remind us of that the summer is already a memory. Images are memories. A jump from the dock into the sunny water with your friends has been given that wage and yellow colour wrapping of nostalgia. Nice and smart from one of the new Small Film directors Tor Einstadblad, who is acclaimed for his warm and visual style. Also an excellent encouragement to save, store and restore your memories in the cloud with Get Sky. Just to make it clear: Get Sky is included in your broadband subscription. And remember, as the second film indicates: Accidents do happen. The ultimate nightmare of every user of any sort of computer or other technological device for that matter – a whole glass of ice coffee or something similar and wet all over your keyboard. In slow motion – so you can really get the feel of it.

Produced by Elisabeth Enstad, post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen and Hocus Focus: Edited by Thomas Løvig, online by Mathias Theissen and Haavard Albertsen, colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Frode Løes Hvatum and Lydhodene.

THE FEATURE FILM DEBUT FROM DIRECTOR STEN HELLEVIG MIGHT AS WELL BE THE NEXT BIG THING FOR OUR YOUNG ONES.

It is not often we have the pleasure of diving into a Norwegian cinematic world of music. In Dryads, the sound design is of outstanding quality and the soundtrack – well, the soundtrack based on original Dryads music from Thom Hell and Marius Christiansen is the best ever! The way the song Mr. Old Guy – or the much more describing title Rome Paris Home – is used throughout the film, never stops to fascinate at any level. It communicates in ways understandable and familiar for teenagers, young adults and even us – the parents. As soon as we leave the cinema, we want more of the songs we experienced in the darkness and are even a bit disappointed to only find one track on Spotify. Which is a very good sign. In addition, the boys are friendly, the girls are many and the iconic and edgy vocalist Henriette aka Iben Akerlie, certainly don’t cry. A great film from a huge team of co-producers and partners: Online & VFX by Mathias Theissen and Haavard Albertsen. Workflow & VFX by Bengt Ove Sannes.
