    This is a great festival with a long tradition. The small festival team really worked their socks off to bring together a great number of high quality films this year. Communications were good and the screenings very enjoyable. When it comes to networking; my impression is that Oslo/Fusion is a festival primarily focused on the audience and their experience rather then the industry.

    I attended the festival and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! I connected with visiting filmmakers, local artists and attendees at festival get togethers and the closing party. Bard, the festival director, is super communicative and hospitable. He showed me around town and made sure I was taken care of. What a cool guy! Anne-Mette, the festival producer, introduced our film and gave great insight to the work. This is a great festival for filmmakers and attendees! I highly recommend submitting and attending if you're able. Thank you Oslo/Fusion!
