Norwegian action/adventure film OPERATION ARCTIC has been selected for 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

 OPERATION ARCTIC will celebrate its US premiere and will screen in the Sundance Kids section at the Festival, which kicks off on January 22nd.

 Directed by Grethe Bøe-Wall and produced by Filmkameratene AS, the Norwegian production company behind this year’s biggest box office hit in Norwegian cinemas, BØRNING as well as recent MAX MANUS (2008) and TROLL HUNTER (2010), OPERATION ARCTIC is an exciting action adventure film shot in one of the most spectacular and dangerous settings in the world – the Arctic Ocean – and tells the story about three kids who suddenly are left behind in the middle of a deserted island. Now the three are forced to face the epic powers of nature, as both blizzards and hungry polar bears threaten their very existence.

 OPERATION ARCTIC is produced by John M. Jacobsen, Sveinung Golimo and Marcus Brodersen for Filmkameratene AS with support from The Norwegian Film Institute and Filmfond Nord AS.
