THE WAVE selected for TIFF’s Special Presentations

Hot off its premiere at the Norwegian International Film Festival, disaster movie The Wave has been selected to screen at the Special Presentations section at the Toronto International Film Festival.


I can´t recall when I last saw a disaster movie of this quality. With high production value, world class drama and Roar’s directing The Wave is simply in a league of its own. The fact that the film was presold to most territories on a teaser underlines the hype of this film. We are super excited that the film can live up to this hype and that Toronto has selected the film.” says CEO Rikke Ennis. (Source: TrustNordisk)
