Program

This years Oslo Pix program is made out of films that will excite and provoke, enrich and delight. Here you'll find action, laughter, love, in-depth documentaries and films that challenge boundaries. The 4th edition of the festival takes place in a time when the pandemic is still marking Oslo's culture scene, and as a result, this year's festival will be digital. Our digital platform boasts 40 films – the best Norwegian and Nordic films from the past year, as well as highlights from the European and North American film scene. We welcome you to a somewhat different festival experience, and hope that you will take a much-needed break from the home office to watch a film, or many, in the cinema or in your living room.

Oslo Grand Pix

Welcome aboard the festival's flagship! Sharp, challenging, beautiful and captivating films compete for the Oslo Grand Pix Prize in three competition programs: International, Nordic Fiction and Nordic Documentary. This is a good place to start when you plan your festival schedule.

Oslo Grand Pix: Nordic Fiction

Oslo Grand Pix: Nordic documentary

Grand Pix: International

Pix Politics

In this section, we pair documentaries with debate. The topics of this year's digital panel discussions range from Denmark's ambitious climate policy, online grooming and the decay of capitalism to local food and sustainability and the yellow vest demonstrations in France. The Pix Politics section is supported by the Fritt Ord Foundation.

Pix on Art

Oslo Pix' section for film on other art forms. Get to know writers Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams and the female pioneers of electronic music, experience composer Max Richter's fascination with sleep, or the entertaining story of a controversial artwork in rural Norway.

Snapshots

This section comprises seven hard-hitting films that somehow reflect the current state. Here's a look at ongoing #metoo struggles in the American music industry, life as a fitness influencer in Poland, the prison system and drug abuse in the United States, or the highly polarized political climate in Germany.

Transformation

In this wide array of films, we get to know characters who are all undergoing a transformation – through the pursuit of a biological parent, dreams of a better life, the transition from child to adult, or disruptive experiences in mid-life.

Family screenings

Enjoy these two films together with the family. The animated film Calamity is an epic and colourful 19th-century coming-of-age story from America, available on our digital platform. The beautiful documentary film Kids Cup lets you into the world's largest football tournament, Norway Cup. It will be available if the cinemas in Oslo open.

Portrait: Anders Thomas Jensen

Anders Thomas Jensen is the director behind this year's opening film Riders of Justice. Get to know Jensen through his first two films Flickering Lights and The Green Butchers on our digital platform.
