Recommendation 

I would really recommend watching the movie IBELIN. Cinemateket will have a pre screening at Kristiansand kino 13 February. The movie doesn’t premiere until March, so this is a great opportunity to see it before everyone else. IBELIN is about Mats Steen, a Norwegian gamer, who died of a degenerative muscular disease at the age of 25. His parents mourned what they thought had been a lonely and isolated life, when they started receiving messages from online friends around the world. Get your tissues ready! 

I would also really recommend the indie venue Vaktbua in general, and more specifically, their Sunday concerts. Check out their lineup and experience up and coming bands, techno dance parties and much more!
