Festival Director

Bollywood is huge, and perhaps the best in film productions with dance, songs and glamour from India. However, it also produced a lot of films that are important to focus on, Movies of the artistic high class which often do not get going right up to the Nordic countries, the festival brings them to the Norwegian public. It is only possible to do this kind of festival with support of the Indian film industry, artists, film-distributors, friends around the world, family and festival team.

The festival has been held every year since 2003. It requires a comprehensive organization based on voluntary involvement of a number of people. One of our main aims is to develop the festival, from a primarily Norwegian-Indian project to a more international festival, based on cooperation with similar companies in other countries. 

The Festival in 2010 had great Super stars like Salman Khan and other personalities who contributed to the festival. They got media coverage not only in Norway but also abroad. The festival has so far been organized by a mini-team, but we want to bring in more new people to do things better and reach a bigger audience. This is a festival with the unique combination of film at the cinema, live music and the best dance performances from India, Norway, UK, Poland and many other parts of the world.
