the festival

Since the pilot in 2013, Lofoten International Photo Festival has been a yearly event. Our goal is to be an arena presenting photographers, both national and international, young or experienced, with important and engaging stories to tell. With the Lofoten archipelago as a backdrop, we wish to stage memorable meetings between our guests and the audience.

The entire program is presented in English as a gesture to our international guests.

the time of year

So far, the festival is held in the late winter, early spring season. During this time of year, the light is already returned, the snow is still hanging in the mountains and the famous fishing season is at its peak.

We recommend to hold off some extra time to be able to visit the surrounding villages. Bring some warm clothes and get to know Lofoten at the time for what it’s famous.
