The objective of the Norwegian Film Institute is to preserve, support and distribute Norwegian and foreign films, so that film as an expression of art and culture becomes more visible.
The Film Institute is located in the Film House (Filmens Hus), a gathering place for film administration, film business and for the general public.
The Cinematheque (Cinemateket) makes film history's central oeuvres available to the moviegoing public, while also monitoring the pulse of contemporary film culture. Five days a week there are usually screenings on each of its two screens.
In the Film House you also find the Film Museum with a permanent exhibit from Norwegian film history, as well as a number of other exhibits, screenings, launches and other events.
Filmens Hus is closed to the public in July.
