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.

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

Call for projects – Books at Haugesund  

Following last year’s model, Books at Haugesund will continue with their one-on-one meetings between literary agents and film producers looking for exiting material suitable for the big screen. Each literary agent is invited to submit up to two projects, which will be given to the producers prior to the festival, and from which we will pre-schedule private one-on-one meetings. 

The following Nordic agents will attended Books at Haugesund in 2023: 

Chiara Stanziani, Helsinki Literary Agency

Astrid Dalaker, Northern Stories Agency

Anette Garpestad, Cappelen Damm Agency
