The workshops were amazing, from the leaders to the participants, the cooperation between the participants and the whole spirit was so good from everybody, the leaders, the stakeholders (TVIBIT-family, NUFF-family ...), everything was so smooth and simplified. (Christine Rinawi, 2011)

40 young filmmakers from all over the world will be divided in 5 groups. Each group will have a room, camera equipment, an editing station (Mac with Premiere Pro), sound equipment, a "very" little budget to work with and a professional filmmaker as workshop leader. The workshop language is English. The task is to make a short film from the idea to the finish film in six days. Each group works independently. They are free to choose genre, theme, topic etc. 


The workshops take place at the Youth Film Centre Tvibit. The centre is located at the middle of downtown Tromsø, and provides camera-, audio-, light equipment and five film editing places during the festival. Tvibit will be the festival centre during NUFF with a café and a meeting point for all workshop- and festival participants, for the audience and film experts.
The workshop participants will share rooms at Thon Hotel Polar near Tvibit. 


The workshop fee will be 1000,- NOK. Participants living in Tromsfylket can apply Tvibit Talent Film Fond to cover the fee. The fee includes workshop, accommodation and three meals each day.
