Expansion of Festival and Release of Early Bird Passes

Fredrikstad Animation Festival (FAF) is adding to the festival, and will in 2020 include a digital addition on top of all the festival’s activities in Fredrikstad.

Planning a festival in 2020 has been a challenge and many festivals have therefore chosen to go digital. True to tradition, the animation festival in Fredrikstad will be held at the Fredrikstad cinema – for the 20th time – and at the same time expand with a digital festival component.

The festival pass holders will have access to both the physical festival in Fredrikstad and the festival’s digital component. The price for Early Bird festival passes is only NOK 200 this year. We hope many will take advantage of the Early Bird offer, even though it is a bit uncertain to plan trips now.

Films selected for the festival’s competition programme were released on July 14. Check out what FAF 2020’s competition programme has to offer here, and secure your Early Bird festival pass below.

The Early Bird offer is available until 1 October (maximum 300 passes).


Since the festival passes are offered at a greatly reduced price this year, we have also opened for donations to the festival. The price for the Early Bird pass is set to what we consider to be a reasonable price if the festival was forced to only go digital.

This means that we expect less ticket revenue in 2020. If you (like us) think Early Bird passes are very cheap, you can make an extra contribution to secure the festival’s finances in a challenging time. Donations are available by selecting the “Buy now” button above. We are grateful for all purchased festival passes and donations!
