Mission: Our mission is to attract the attention of the audience to the art-house genre, with the help of your works.

Sea of Art is a monthly International Film Festival with an annual live event in Stavanger in Norway, the purpose of which is to search for brilliant works in various genres and types of art, we do not want and will not drive you into the framework, our task is to prove to people that creativity is limitless and no one can change it.

That is why Sea of Art supports independent filmmakers from different countries and all genres, and is also looking for new talents to popularize their work.

Every month we look at hundreds of applications and try to find something fresh and unusual. In addition to the monthly film festivals, at the end of the year you will find an annual one, in which only the best works (according to the jury), which were selected from all the winners' works, take part.
The works are evaluated by professional producers and cinematographers from the film industry.

Why should you choose us? Because we look at the world differently and appreciate what others don't see, create and win and let everyone around see what they haven't seen before.
