We are passionate about the creative intersection between art and expression. By presenting fresh perspectives and unique interpretations of human experiences, we aim to foster a platform that is both thought-provoking and captivating.

The 3rd annual Viten Film Festival will be held in early October 2024 at Cinemateket-USF in Bergen, Norway.

We are a film festival that showcases independent international short and feature-length films from all genres. Through cinema, we aspire to inspire and engage audiences, showcasing the diverse tapestry of human creativity.

We are looking for films of any genre that tell an inspiring story, whether that be about an individual, a group of people, or an endeavor. All genres are welcome, including documentary, fiction, educational, experimental, data visualization, simulations, animation, live-action, or anything else you can dream of!

In addition, we are also looking for short films for and about children. Our audience will mostly be Norwegian, so we would prefer films in the Norwegian language, or with no to minimum dialogue, or subtitles.
