The mission for Tromsø Educational Film Festival (TREFF) is to promote the use of film as a pedagogical tool.  TREFF is all about showcasing creative and clever ways to teach through film and we want to present the best films made for education.

At TREFF we bring together filmmakers and educators alike and cultivate new connections and inspiration within the world of educational film.

During TREFF we will not only watch films, but also discuss their pedagogical value. We will also have several interesting key notes who will talk about film as a medium for learning. There will also be an opportunity to attend a workshop and we will have social gatherings.

Tromsø is a small but vibrant city in the North of Norway surrounded by mountains and the sea. The city offers an easy access to stunning nature as well as an academic and creative environment at UiT The Arctic University of Norway.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to become a part of this great community of filmmakers and educators.
