Welcome to Oslo Pix Film Festival 2022

Opening Night Film // SICK OF MYSELF

Closing Night Film // TRIANGLE OF SADNESS

Oslo Grand Pix

Sharp, challenging, beautiful and captivating films fight for the Oslo Grand Pix Award in three competition sections: International Competition, Nordic Fiction Competition and Nordic Documentary Competition. This is a good place to start when planning what to see at the festival.

Nordic Fiction Competition

Nordic Documentary Competition

International Competition

Norwegian Indie

The Norwegian Indie section highlights the most exciting that has come out of Norwegian independent production the last year. Discover exciting filmmakers in this section full of innovative films.

One chance!

A few films only have one screening at the festivals. We have collected them for you to give you an overview and make sure you don't miss anything. Here you'll find exclusive pre-screenings of some of the biggest titles coming out this fall.

Pix Politics

Film is a great medium to convey insight and knowledge about complex societal issues. With film as its starting point, Pix Politics is a window to the world around us, giving us knowledge and reflection about our society, and can inspire to engagement and action.

Pix on Art

Pix on Art is the section to see films about film or other art forms in a wider sense, and this year's section consist of documentaries about the fashion world in Paris, the master Ennio Morricone and the Irish icon Sinéad O'Connor.

Family screenings

Bring your whole family to the festival – both inside and outside. During the weekdays you can bring along dinner and settle down at Schous plass with our free outdoor cinema, and during the weekend you can bring your kids to see an animation about Anne Frank or Knøttekino in Salongen at Vega Scene with Alfie Atkins.

In the Crossfire

The consequences of the war in Ukraine have so far been catastrophic and millions of people have been forced to flee. To understand the way forward, or at least understand why the atrocities escalated this year, we have to go back and examine the roots of the conflict. With the «In the Crossfire» section, the festival wishes to turn the focus to the period during and following the annexation of Crimea in 2014 to illuminate what preceded the Russian invasion on February 24th this year.

Queer Cultural Year

Only 50 years ago today it was illegal to be gay in Norway. On April 21st 1972 the paragraph § 213 of the Norwegian Penal Code was abolished. his was a provision that prohibited sexual intercourse between men. On the occasion of Queer Culture Year 2022 and the abolishment of § 213, we in Oslo Pix Film Festival wish to highlight the queer stories in the festival program. Even though 50 years have passed since the decriminalization, we still have a long way to go in both Norway and the rest of the world, something we had a painful reminder of on the night before July 25th this summer.

Festival Favorites

Brilliant films from the great international festivals that will amaze you. Here you will find a mix of genres and highlights from film festivals like Cannes, Toronto, Berlin, South by Southwest, Sundance, Tribeca and Locarno.

Focus: Abortion

The fight for the right to decide over one's own body has not been won. This was clearly demonstrated when the American Supreme Court recently decided to overturn the "Roe v. Wade" decision from 1973, and thus put an end to almost 50 years of constitutionally protected right to abortion in the USA. It is estimated that at least 40 million women and girls of reproductive age now are in danger of losing access to safe and legal abortions.

The Nordic Council Film Prize

From Tuesday to Friday during the festival, we welcome you to a host of outdoor screenings at Schous plass, fit for families, adults and small children.

We are showing the new NRK series COMPANY THORWALD with the series' creators present. The screening is free, but remember to get your ticket ahead of time.

Pix Kulinarisk

Food, drinks and film belong together, and this year we are launching a section that will grow in the years to come. We will serve the audience a knowledgeable and humorous look at wine – told about the ones who makes a living off the precious drops.

Pix Crawl: Kortfilm

Wednesday August 31st we will bring a small bite of the Short Film Festival in Grimstad to Oslo's best pub crawl. The concept: Five short films on three different bars spread across Grünerløkka.
