Human International Documentary Film Festival is a documentary film festival that focuses on current human rights issues. The film festival spans over seven days and consists of 40 documentaries. Besides films, the program includes a large number of debates, seminars, performances and talks, with the intention of raising awareness about crucial human rights challenges.


All documentaries are either in English or subtitled in English. All events in Norwegian are marked as such in the program.



Ticket sales will begin in Febuary and tickets can be bought at the events as well as on the webpages of the different venues, which you can find links to below.

Tickets to Caféteatret are sold at the entrance.

All events are open to everyone above the age of 15.

Ticket prices:
100 NOK
50 NOK for students / members of Cinemateket

All events at Debattscenen are free.



At Cinemateket it is important that you show up on time: ten minutes after the screening starts we start to fill empty seats with people who didn’t get a ticket, and are standing in the rush line.

That means if you have a ticket, you still lose your seat after ten minutes if the screening is full.

It also means that if you arrive to a sold-out show, you can get a number and wait in a rush line until we fill up empty seats.




Cinemateket is our main festival venue and with its state of the art equipment provides Norway’s best cimena experince. Here you’ll find one of the festivals infostands.

Here you’ll find:

  • Tancred
  • Lillebil
  • Debattscenen

The Film Café at Cinemateket will be open all days during the festival, and offers humane festival prices.
