All films start on time.

 

AGE LIMITS

All films screened during the Films from the South Festival have age limits. You can read about them in our festival magazine and on our webpage. Parents can bring children that are up to three years younger than the age limit on films screened during the festival. The minimum age limit of 18 years is however absolute and not subject to exemptions.

Information about age limits in general can be found at www.medietilsynet.no.

 

SUBTITLES

You can find information about which language the films’ subtitles are in on the Films from the South website, www.filmfrasor.no, and in the movie reviews in our festival magazine.

NB: The information regarding subtitles is uncorrect for some of the films in our catalogue. Burning, Rafiki, One Cut of the Dead and Kapernaum is screened with Norwegian subtitles. Shoplifters and The Tower are screened with English subtitles.
