The Fritt Ord Foundation’s list of allocations has been updated to include grants in response to applications for less than NOK 100 000 in November 2021.

In November, the sum of MNOK 3.095 was allocated to projects in the category minor ordinary applications. These applications are for NOK 100 000 or less, and this month, the grants include funding for documentary films, festivals and several exciting book projects.

The bookshop Audiatur Bokhandel AS was granted NOK 80 000 to publish an anthology about Belarus, in which contemporary Belarusian writers furnish texts about the ongoing political situation in Belarus, which are subsequently translated and published in Norwegian. Marina Hobbel, Ulyana Veryna and Gunnar Wærness are the editors of the anthology project.

Stray Dog Norway was awarded NOK 75 000 to develop the documentary film ‘Good in Norwegian’. The film investigates what is taught at the Norwegian language and social studies classes that are obligatory for individuals applying for work and residence permits in Norway, and how participants experience the courses.

The Trondheim Documentary Festival was awarded NOK 75 000. The festival was held for the 13th time from 18 to 20 November 2021. Since its inception in 2009, the goal of the festival has been to pioneer the promotion of documentaries in Norway by presenting a variety of different documentary genres and disciplines.
