Norwegian Film Institute

The Norwegian Film Institute (Norwegian: Norsk filminstitutt) was founded in 1955 to support and develop the Norwegian film industry. On 1 April 2008, it was merged with Norwegian Film Fund, Norwegian Film Development, and Norwegian Film Commission to form the "'new' Norwegian Film Institute" under the auspices of the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Culture.[1]
