15th Norway Tamil film festival

Norway tamil film festival is proudly entering the 15th successful year an achievement of its own. I the festival Director stand at the peak of pride that directors, actors, technicians and all those who  are connected to the cinema field had given us immense support during
the past 15 years. A big thank you to you all.

During these 15 years a number of directors actors and others have honoured our festival and had come to receive their awards. I could not name all of them because it is a long list.

This 15th year is a mile stone for the festival and we would like to welcome as many awardees as possible to come and receive your awards personally.

An award is a recognition for the person who receive that and afterall you worked for such recognition. We would like to welcome old and new faces to come and enjoy the festival.
This year for the first time we decided to avoid most of the films that showed extream violence although they were blöck busters, inorder to bring out more films which are needed to a healthy society.

We also wanted to give recognition for young and growing artistes if not fully atleast partly.
We selected films that are showing daily occurencess, simple house hold problems and social problems together with historic records to make awareness for the public.

With hard work and dedication we organized this festival.Your appreciation and support will be our reward.

Hope to see all the award winners at the festival.
We wish you a happy Pongal festival
