THE COLLECTIVE

We know Lofoten

 

After collecting decades worth of experience, producing high-end content in the Arctic, we figured that we would gather the film forces of Lofoten. The result is Lofoten Film Collective. Our bios have keywords like ski touring, northern lights, surfing, and climbing. Both running around making films and on our days off, you’re most likely to find us outside in the unique nature of the Lofoten Islands.
