"Books at Haugesund" was initiated by The Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund in 2017. The event aims to bring publishers and literary agents from the Nordic countries to Haugesund to meet producers and the rest of the film industry together where literary agents and producers will get to know each other through "speed dates". 

Approximately ten novels will anually be presented to film producers looking for exciting literary material suitable for the big screen. The festival invites agents with film rights to books to meet with Nordic producers looking for great stories.
