Burning Memories, premiere at Tromsø Film Festival TIFF, January 2018

                 e is run by filmmakers Anne Kjersti Bjørn, Anne Magnussen and Ellen-Astri Lundby.  Our CDs consist of short films, animation and documentaries. In addition of making free artistic films, we also conduct research dissemination, assignment films, teaching, lectures and workshops. We met each other in Bergen in the 90s, where both the Media Workshop and the Norwegian Film Center put Bergen on the film map. Today we are located in Oslo and Bergen with strong connection to Finnmark and Northern Norway.

History & Her-story Cinemas believe that stories having a gender perspective are important. It is necessary to promote a female gaze on the world as long as there is a gender imbalance in who expresses themselves in the film media. Cinemama also has a big heart for the personal documentary and historical films. On the repertoire we have several films about the relationship between mothers and daughters! Cinema's focus is on enhancing, promoting and distributing films made by female directors, and is happy to collaborate with men on this!


Ellen-Astri Lundby is a producer and director in her own company Ellen Lundby Film & Media with several award winning films, not least the two cultural documentaries My Mother's Secret and Joikefeber. These are films that have gained a place in the collective consciousness about the Norwegians' research and are used in many different contexts. Excerpts from the first mentioned film now include in the exhibition "People - from race types to DNA sequences", at the Technical Museum in Oslo. Lundby also has experience in research dissemination and has made films for scientific conferences, films that will later be shown at film festivals! This spring, Lundby's latest documentary Burning Memories went to the cinema in Northern Norway and received good criticism for how it lifts our own war history with 75,000 Norwegians driven by the occupation power - up to the present day where millions are fleeing war constantly.
