The Kanon Award

The Kanon Award is the Norwegian film professionals’ own annual award, where peers come together and vote for the best contributions to Norwegian film in the year that has passed.

Members of the following associations vote for the winners of the various categories: Norsk skuespillerforbund, Norske filmregissører, Produsentforeningen, Filmforbundet, NOPA, Norsk komponistforening, Norsk filmlydforening, Norsk dramatikerforbund and Foreningen Norske Filmfotografer.

Members of these associations, guilds and unions vote forward one winner in eleven different categories. In addition to this, we celebrate one film which has been voted forward by the Norwegian public as the year’s best through our partner Filmweb.

The next Kanon Awards will be held March 5th 2020.


Mid Norway film market


Mid Norway’s Film Market (Midtnorsk filmmarked) is the most important meeting place of the year for Trøndelag’s film industry, as well as anyone that’s interested in a closer relationship with central Norwegian film production. Here, local filmmakers present teasers from their latest films currently in production in the region. Specialists in editing, sound, music and effects are all represented and ready to show what they’ve been working on.

Mid Norway Film Centre (Midtnorsk Filmsenter) and Filminvest in cooperation with Kosmorama,  invites the public, the press, students and politicians, business and arts to an eventful day dedicated to “trøndersk” film. Mid Norway Film Market is hosted every year in week 10. This year, the film market ended with the filmpitch, Vårstigen.


New Directors Award

Filmmakers from around the world, with a portfolio of three feature fiction films or less, are eligible for having their latest film selected to our main competition. Kosmorama’s programming committee, headed by the artistic director of the festival, will select competition participants that we believe show an emerging directing talent. Our programmers are actively searching for the most significant contemporary filmmakers, finally nominating a total of 12-15 feature films for the competition.

An international jury of three members will view the selection during the festival and choose a winner. In addition, the films in the competition section will be eligible for our NDA Audience Award – our audience will vote forward their favorite throughout the festival screenings.
