Northern Disco Lights: The Rise and Rise of Norwegian Dance Music
This fascinating film tells the story of how a group of friends in the remote cities of Bergen and Tromsø gave birth to a unique sound that went on to redefine today's dance music culture and transform a country in the process. The generation of DJs and musicians it inspired have gone on to conquer the world. Staring Prins Thomas, Annie, Bjørn Torske, Lindstrøm, Idjut Boys and Bill Brewster, amongst many others.
The BFI is funding ‘Transformative Film Culture For Hull', as part of its National Lottery-funded BFI Film Audience Network and led by its lead partner BFI Film Hub North. Delivered through Hull 2017 and by Hull Independent Cinema and a unique partnership of film festival, educational and archive partners from across the north, the film programme will bring a packed programme of more than 400 screenings, one-off events and film festivals throughout the year to Hull and the region. The programme reflects the BFI’s activities across the UK to bring film to audiences where there is less opportunity for them to experience and engage in film, and to support local film networks and audience initiatives. There will be much to explore, celebrate and enjoy.
