Nordland School of Art and Film (NKFS) in Lofoten is an art school specializing in moving images. The school is one of the contributors to Kunstnernes Hus Cinema's project Mapping Distribution: New Norwegian Initiatives, which explores the possibilities for alternative distribution of alternative films. Can alliances across artistic disciplines help create better structures fort artist- and independent film?
Together with On & For Production and Distribution, Kunstnernes Hus Kino has invited a few professionals across the disciplines, to contribute to a series of video reflections and a panel discussion.
A series of video reflections will be launched during March and April and serve as the background for a panel discussion on Zoom on April 20th. The reflections in this video are presented by Nordland School of Arts and Film.
Nordland School of Arts and Film (NKFS), situated in the Arctic Circle in northern Norway, offers a BA in moving image. Rather than a traditional film school, NKFS is an art school educating artists specialising in moving image. This approach is characterised by a deep reflection on the language and methods used, and a critical and creative approach to film conventions. The school is also active nationally in the discourse on new methods of funding, production and distribution reflecting the growth and needs of this field of film practice. The school is intended to function as a meeting place, and to challenge the status quo through new thinking and practices.
