The List was at Kosmorama’s Kanonprisen last night, and let me tell you, it’s hard work writing this post right now. The big winner on the night was clearly the fjord wave disaster flick Bølgen, which picked up four awards, but the biggest loser was my head. It was a good party!
Family drama Louder than Bombs picked up two awards, including best script. Special recognition should go to ‘Den Tilfeldige Rockestjernen’, the documentary about Kaizers Orchestra which won the Kosmorama prize.
Also kudos to Kosmorama for putting on an amazing show. There were some incredible musical performances, including a wonderful cover of Bowie’s Life on Mars, by Gammelgrass. I’d definitely recommend next year’s award ceremony to anyone who is interested in cinema or music, though not if you have an early start on Friday morning!
The List was also happy to share the company of some of our samarbeid partners; Technoport, Teekay and NordØst. We ate at Mathallen beforehand, which was delicious as always. Hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did.
Is this the best Kosmorama festival ever? It certainly feels like it, and we are just barely half way through. Our pick of today’s films is a classic. In collaboration with Meta.Morf 2016, Kosmorama delivers an exclusive screening of the 1968 sci-fi epic 2001: A Space Odyssey, by Stanley Kubric. And check this out, the photographic special effects advisor of the movie, inventor and director, Douglas Trumbell, will be there in person to introduce the movie! This is the guy who basically won Kubric the Best Visual Effects Oscar in ’69 – what an honour to have him here in Trondheim.
He will also be the keynote speaker at Meta-Morf’s conference tomorrow – check out the full programme here.
