It’s the opening day of the festival and The List is so excited to work in conjunction with Kosmorama! The whole city has been buzzing with excited chatter about the film offerings this week, and certain films have been getting a bit of extra buzz, making them the hot ones not to be missed. Not sure what’s playing when? Check out the festival schedule in the magazine or at kosmorama.no for a full listing. We at The List will be blogging daily about our reflections from the day before and our top picks that we’re most excited for that day. All of this to celebrate this awesome week of cinema and to make it easy for everyone to get out there and enjoy Kosmorama’s abundant offerings!

So with that in mind, here are some of the things that I’m looking out for today. It’s a jam-packed first day, and everyone is talking about the opening film, Carol, which shows today at 18:30 (and tomorrow at 14:30). I’ve heard so many tips about this movie and with six Academy Award nominations to its name, media around the world have been hailing it as a must-see. So what better way than to grab some popcorn and head over to Kosmorama to see it today?

I’ve also been hearing a lot of talk about Don’t Tell Me the Boy Was Mad, showing today at 12:00 (and with multiple other showings during the week). A gem coming out of the Cannes Film Festival, the French film explores the heavy topics of genocide and terrorism. Please note, subtitles for this film are in Norwegian.

And of course, if you’re in for a scare, the festival’s horror division also kicks off tonight with Baskin at 22:00 (showing another day as well), a psychological thriller from Turkey that is sure to bring an unforgettable experience. So get out there, check it out and bring out your inner cinephile! Kosmorama has officially commenced.
