Oscar nomination raised cheers and questions

A Norwegian short film won a coveted Oscar nomination last week that was roundly celebrated by all involved. It also raised questions about where the public can actually see short films, since they’re not often shown at the cinema or through streaming services.

The film, called Nattrikken (Night Ride in English) tells what the Norwegian Film Institute called the “funny and touching” story about a woman who steals a tram (trikk in Norwegian) in Trondheim and then becomes responsible for everyone on board. During the process she’s confronted with a series of social issues and how to deal with them.

“We are so proud of this film, and everyone behind it,” producer Gaute Lid Larssen told TV2. Co-producer Heidi Arnesen added that “it’s of course a dream to be part of a production that’s become so honoured and so far in the Oscar process.”

Nattrikken won rave reviews and awards at several film festivals last year including Tribeca in New York, but many were wondering where they could see it in Norway. Calls were going out for more showings before feature films at local cinemas and some websites were linking to it.
