Short Film is a blessed area within the Art of Film where there is still headroom for experimentation, and white spaces left on the map to explore.

The 25th Minimalen Short Film Festival invites you cordially to take part in this year's edition: Norwegian and Nordic films in four competitions, hot prizes and a chance to check out what goes on right now within the creative part of filmmaking — whether you would like to explore the World, the Nordic region, Norway or Trondheim.
