EL CLáSICO WON THE PRIZE FOR BEST FOREIGN FICTION, AT THE TCFF - THE TRAVERSE CITY FILM FESTIVAL, FOUNDED BY MICHAEL MOORE TONIGHT. CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE INVOLVED!

The Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund is just around the corner. A big congratulation to Halkawt Mustafa and his film El Clásico for the Amanda nomination for best director, and the additional nomination for best film music to Trond Bjerknes. We are very proud and thankful for the opportunity to take part in the journey of this extraordinary film about love, football and so much more. Already a festival winner all around the world, awarded at the Tribeca Film Festival and others, we are cheering for an Amanda – the best of luck!

HOCUS FOCUS HAS GREAT NEWS. AFTER PREPARING, WORKING AND TOURING WITH A-HAS LATEST ALBUM – ERIK LJUNGGREN IS BACK FROM SOUTH-AMERICA, EUROPE AND HIS LEAVE OF ABSENCE.

We are thrilled to have him back in business at Hocus Focus. Erik has already managed to get his hands on the Critical Award in Grimstad and Amanda-nominee with his work on “Retrett”. There are certainly more magical sounds to come in August, after a well-deserved holiday. A big thanks to Erik for sharing the A-HA adventure with the whole team at Hocus Focus, and for bringing us along at the last After Glow show in Oslo Spektrum.

A GREAT AND GRAND SUMMER CAMPAIGN IS COMING UP FROM CHESS. WITH NO LESS THAN 16 FILMS AND VERSIONS, FANTEFILM WITH PRODUCER HALVOR LID AND DIRECTOR ANDREAS KLEIBERG ARE SETTING THE MOOD WITH RELAXED FUN AND EASY CONVERSATION.

The message is clear – what you need is the Chess combo. That is a double amount of data for free to the end of August. On top of the ordinary Chess criteras of course, which for instance means that you reach the people you want to get hold of, wherever they are. And cheap use of your mobile. And excellent client service. And much more. The combo of image, colour and sound at the screen are great as well – with all you could ever dream of for the summer. For instance dancing on rooftops with light bulbs, pretty people and loud music. If you’re not more of a head-spinning in the paint kind of a guy – you get that too.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ANDREAS KLEIBERG FOR THE NOMINATION TO THE YOUNG DIRECTORS AWARD IN CANNES LIONS FOR THIS FILM ABOUT THE INFINITUM MOVEMENT.

The film encourage us to do something little for something grand – recycle our bottles and cans for the world’s environment health. Fantefilm and producer Halvor Lid have made a beautiful and meaningful film, showing us the rawness and wildness of nature in picturesque images. Presented as a documentary-like story about a surfer from Oddevik, his voice-over makes insightful reflections. About man and the sea, about how the ocean connects the world, and about the fact that since the 50ies, 150 million ton of eternal oil based plastic have been dumped in the ocean. It makes sense that the least we can do is to deposit our goods of plastic.
