The program for Kosmorama 2020 is here!

The complete program for Kosmorama 2020 is finally here! We’ve been looking forward to sharing the program with you for months, searching all corners of the world to find the very best of films.

Kosmorama means something like «perspectival rendering of the world’s sights». This says something about why film matters: Films widen your perspectives of the world.

This year’s program takes you on a journey around the world, and we hope you’ll be entertained, challenged, amazed and encouraged.

However, Kosmorama is more than film. This year, the festival will be all around town. Experience special screenings, culinary cinema, outdoor cinema, and other events at venues such as Solsiden, Bula Neobistro, Lokal Bar – Scene – Klubb and Alma’s.

Immerse yourself in this year’s program, and start making your plans for week 10!

Some Highlights

There’s so much to look forward to in week 10! To make planning easier, we’ve highlighted some of the things worth checking out.

We’re proud to announce that the Oscar-winning director Costa-Gavras is coming to Kosmorama! We’ll screen his new film Adults in the Room, and Costa-Gavras and producer Michele Ray-Gavras will be present at the screening on Tuesday at 6 pm. We’ll also show a few highlights from his rich career together at Cinemateket in Trondheim.

Two Oscar-nominated films in the category for Best International Feature Film have their Norwegian premiere at Kosmorama. Corpus Christi is a masterpiece from the Polish director Jan Komasa, while The Painted Bird is one of the most intense films on the program this year. Director Václav Marhoul will be present at the screening of the latter on Monday at 6 pm and on Tuesday at 2 pm.

The Farewell has already captured the hearts of critics and audience alike, and we hope Trondheim will love the film as much as we do. The closing film The Perfect Candidate is an optimistic story from Saudi Arabia, while Let There Be Light gives us disturbing insights into the growing unrest in Europe. Moffie is a painful, but strikingly beautiful film from South Africa, while The House of Us is yet another example of excellent filmmaking from South Korea.
