Is there a way to participate in the festival for students who are not able to apply?
ISFiT 2021 is constantly working to plan the best possible festival that fits the current situation. A part of this plan is to establish some digital alternatives. The idea is to host live streams from part of the Cultural Program as well as the Student Peace Prize. Further information regarding these digital events will be updated in the future. However, we cannot confirm this at the moment.
What will I do during ISFiT21?
Participants spend their days attending workshops that relate to the theme "Creating Knowledge’. You can see information about the workshop options in the ‘Workshop’ tab. At the workshops, you will have discussions with other students about relevant topics, and participate in a variety of activities. In addition to the workshops, you will attend talks from international speakers, and cultural events such as concerts, theatre performances, and comedy nights. And of course, there will be parties and social events with the ISFiT volunteers and students of Trondheim!
Will I be given financial aid to attend the festival?
Some financial aid may be available for applicants to cover travel costs, and you can apply for this aid in the application. There is no guarantee that we can provide you financial assistance to travel to Trondheim however.
When will I find out the outcome of my application?
You will be contacted about the result of your application from late October to early November. Every applicant will be contacted with an outcome, whether you are given a place in ISFiT21 or not. Successful applicants will be provided with all further important information once they are selected.
I am from Hungary or Poland. Can I still apply for ISFiT's Dialogue Seminar?
Yes. If you are from/resident in Poland or Hungary, you can still apply for ISFiT's Dialogue Seminar, and the application deadline is 11.10.2020. The Dialogue Group is still inviting students from Poland and Hungary to come to Norway in February. The Dialogue project is an important part of ISFiT with a long tradition which we strive to uphold. If you are invited to attend the Dialogue Seminar, you will also be able to attend the ISFiT Festival after the seminar, alongside students residing in Norway.
What are the requirements to apply?
You must be a student at least the age of 18 living in Norway. You also must have an active student status throughout this festival period and should be able to communicate in English.
Why can only Norwegian residents attend ISFiT21?
Due to the ongoing pandemic we cannot accept applications from anyone other than residents of Norway. This is based on travel regulations from the Norwegian government, in addition to the responsibility ISFiT feels for not spreading the virus across borders.
What are the costs of attending ISFiTs Dialogue Seminar?
If you are invited to attend the Dialogue Seminar, all your expenses will be covered by ISFiT. This includes travel expenses, three meals a day and accomodation. Essentially, all participant costs will be covered during ISFiT21, except for any additional/alternate food you would like to buy, and non-essential purchases such as souvenirs. Some optional events on the cultural program, such as concerts, also require that you purchase tickets to attend. However, there will always be something fun and free for you to take part in!
When is the deadline for submitting my application?
The deadline for the participant application will be 23rd of October, 23:59 (GMT +2).
