Norwegian film statistics January – June 2015

Staying Alive

The Nordisk Film and TV Fund has announced the Norwegian film statistics for the first half of 2015, and has pointed out a dramatic decrease in Norwegian local film attendance. Over 5.1 million Norwegians saw a film in a local cinema, and while this is up from last year, the Norwegian films hit a record low market share of 3.8% and only 194,626 admissions. To compare, Norwegian films had a market share of 20% the same time last year.

This may be due to the lack of crowd-pulling films released in Norway, but with The Wave, Louder Than Bombs and sequels to kids films due for the second half of the year, hopefully that attendance will go up.
