A future-oriented film policy

- The range of films on offer should be broad, varied and of high quality. The public should have access to films regardless of where they live, and irrespective of what platform they want to use. By placing greater emphasis on universal design, we will also make sure that content is available to everyone,” said Minister of Culture Thorhild Widvey when presenting the government’s white paper on film.
