MIRAGE Professionals section aims at creating an arena and meeting ground for the community of filmmakers, artists and professionals working with cinema. Editors, cinematographers, sound-designers, directors, and the essential creatives in the collaborative art of cinema. They will all have their new home and breeding-ground at MIRAGE.
MIRAGE was created by filmmakers with an ambition to help strengthen the position of the auteur and artists working with film. To stimulate uncompromising projects and better the opportunities for funding and distribution for artistically cinematic films. Also striving to create fascination, understanding and recognition of the non-fiction film and its methods as a form of artistic expression, not only "documentary" and journalism.
In collboration with the Norwegian and Scandinavian associations for cinematography, editing, sound design, directing and producing, we aim to build a home for the Norwegian and international film professionals. A place for inspiration, for new partnerships and collaborations and a breeding ground for co.productions. As well as a place for young filmmakers and students to meet the industry.
