BEHIND THE SCENES
ABOUT US
KONTXTFILM HAS A GOAL TO PRESENT CHILDREN AND YOUTH FILM THAT STANDS FOR CURIOSITY AND EXCITEMENT. AND OF COURSE IS WORTH SPENDING TIME ON.

When I was 11 years old my father took me took me to the movies and we saw Lasse Hallström “My life as a Dog”. When I look back, this is no doubt the cultural experience that has meant most to me. It both shaped me as a human and ignited my interest in movies. It is a sad fact that films from Europa has disappeared from Norwegians Cinemas. My goal with KontxtFilm is to change this fact and help Cinemas to give children and youth in Norway a better variety of films.

My strongest qualification is that I love films and that I am still in good contact with the child inside me. I also carry a dream to find a movie that can have the same impact on children and youth that Hallström’s film had on me. It will be not easy, special to reach out to the masses because Hollywood is both good at its work and has now a very dominant role at the Norwegian Cinemas and at home.

But hopefully KontxtFilm can get some attention. And I have a dream that quality will always survive. KontxtFilm founded in 2012 will only focus on children and youth films. And will release those both Theatrical and Home Entertainment. I have a goal to put the film into the right context, both in marketing terms but also how we released it. With KontxtFilm you will get a real commitment; because I only want to work with films that I love – and with love come commitment.

– Stig Brekke, founded of KontxtFilm.
