The festival annually brings together internationally recognized photographers - as well as emerging photographers - to share knowledge, inspiration and life stories.


For a few days in the fall, on the rugged west coast of Norway, world-renowned photo legends, aspiring photographers, students and photography lovers gather in the small and charming Norwegian coastal town of Kristiansund. The festival program presents lectures, exhibitions, gallery talks, book signings, portfolio reviews and films, attracting photographers from all over the world.

Nordic Light Festival is designed to give everyone a fantastic cultural experience, from early morning to late night. Photographers tell stories about their projects, their journeys and their experiences, which inspires and lives on in the audience. The festival is a meeting place and a cultural experience center that is an enriching experience and provides a break from a busy everyday life.

Now in its sixteenth year, in 2023 the festival will present the works of Hilla Kurki, Yina Chan, Ellie Rokhaug, Caspar Seip and more to be announced.
