Tips for TIFF

As mentioned above, we do not organize the festival nor the accommodation for the festival goers. We deal with the bus ride and that’s it! Everything else is up to you. Here are some good tips for the trip:

BUS RIDE

Bus ride is quite long even in a good company. Prepare yourself for the trip
– Be there on time. We do collect the names and contact info of the people joining our bus trip and try not to leave anyone behind. However – be there on time!
– Dress up comfortably. Choose warm and cozy clothes for the ride. Maybe bring a sleep mask and earplugs too. 
– Pillow and/or blanket
– Bring snacks and drinks
– Things to do on the bus: listen to music or audio books (with headphones), read a book, read about Tromso and the festival program, talk to other people if they seem open to that.

ACCOMMODATION

We don’t organize any group accommodation. Tromso is a big city and everyone has different preferences for their stay. We recommend to find a place from the center, close to the venues. 

Here is a map from previous TIFF. The orange dots are venues, so you can see they are all quite close to each other and in the center. 

You can find accommodation from:
couchsurfing
airbnb
booking
Or maybe ask a local friend or tinder match to host you. If you find some massive accommodation to share and would like us to help to find people to share it with, send us email.

Ticket cards (klippekort) are good for people who want to see more films. You can get 12x or 22x cards. The ticket card is not personal so you can also share one with a friend. With the ticket card you can then purchase tickets on tiff.no to the screenings you wish to go, if there is still availability.  

Klippekort 12x 1560,00 NOK ≈ 150€
Klippekort 22x 2596,00 NOK ≈ 250€

FESTIVAL PROGRAM

See the full program here.

TIFF has so many movie screenings and we recommend to get to know the program beforehand. Many of the screenings will sold out, especially some of the special screenings. TIFF has had at least film concerts, short movies, art program and outdoor kino.

FESTIVAL FRIENDS

Want to go but don’t have company? Our festival bus is a good place to find people to hang out with in Tromso also. You have the opportunity to find out what people are going to see and if they wish to attend the same screenings as you. We will inform all the extra voluntary meet ups with cinema clubbers in Tromso when the full program is out. 

TROMSO

Tromso – like Rovaniemi – is an arctic winter wonderland. Bring your warmest clothes and expect no more sun than we have here that time of the year. 

Tromso is a vibrant student city and has lots of interesting stuff to see. You can plan other activities for your trip as well. Here are some links:
