We know Lofoten

THE COLLECTIVE

After collecting decades worth of experience of producing high-end content in the Arctic, we figured that we would collect the film forces of Lofoten, which resulted in Lofoten Film Collective. Our bios consist of keywords like ski touring, northern lights, surfing, and climbing, and if we’re not running around on productions, you’re most likely to find us out in the unique nature of the Lofoten Islands.
