Name: Eilif Bremer Landsend, 21 year old
Where are you from? I am from a city called Tromso, Tromso lies above the arctic circle in Northern-Norway. Tromso is surrounded by mountaines and the occean.
I am a young filmmaker from Tromso – I went to my first film workshop when I was 12. After that I made many short short films and I joined a film group. Throughout my time at Tvibit(a filmhouse for young people) I have got the chance to travel around the world woth my films to various filmfestivals. I have also got the chance to be a workshop leader at many other festivals. Recently i spent three months in South Africa travelling around having film workshops for youth. It was a big experience. It was a Tvibit project supported by the Norwegian peace corpse. Here is the link to the blog: www.alwaysalive.tumblr.com
Now I am developing new filmrelated projects, short films and a feature film.
All the stuff that I have got a chance to be a part of – both films I have made, but also other film related stuff, I think is developing me as a filmmaker.
The name of your film in the festival: The film is called “Kiki” – the film is about a old surfer who lives in a caravan on a beach in the Lofoten Islands. He likes to eat fishbolls, surf and sniff. Kiki gets in trouble with the local turist manager and at the same time he is trying to get his girlfriend back.
Here is the link to another film that I have made: http://www.openfilm.com/videos/last-stop-siste-stopp
Kiki is screening during the Big Finish on Sunday night at 8 pm.
