Oslo/Fusion Film Festival was founded in 1990 and is Norway's only film festival dedicated to stories of, by and for the LGBTQIA+ community, and is also one of Norway's longest running film festivals. It is still the largest festival dedicated to promote diversity, equality and education through entertainment, with film screenings, panel discussions and related events.
In 2021 we celebrate our 31st edition and we invite you to join us!
Film is a powerful medium that can entertain, educate and create change, all at the same time. We look for new perspectives and reflections in stories from our personal or shared lives, and human experiences; films that explore and celebrate diversity in identity, gender, cultural background, and sexuality, or challenge norms and common perceptions in our global society.

The festival venue is at the Norwegian Film Institute's Cinemateket. It has two theaters, both with state-of-the-art projection and the latest Sony Atmos sound system.
Accepted formats for screenings are DCP (2K/4K), 3D, 70mm, 35mm, Betacam, HDcam, and high res (h264 / mp4 / mov).

    This was a beautifully curated Festival with a wonderful selection of highly creative and original films! It has a lovely intimate vibe, the team is so friendly and hospitable and we had really great audience engagement for our Premiere. Plus I think they produced one of the nicest Catalogue booklets and Festival opening credits I have seen!

    From the very begining the communication with the festival was good.
    Unfortunatly I couldn't attend to the festival, and I didn't present my work to the audience as I would have loved it.
    I hope the film received a good welcome.
    I wish all my best to the festival team, and once again thank you for selecting my film, I'm very happy it has been screened in OSLO/FUSION

    An incredible festival which brings together some of the best queer narratives from all around the world. Can't be more thankful for giving our film "Miss Man" such a great European premiere!
