Rita Osei's Bliss! - shot on location in South Shields, Bergen, Fjærland and Flåm - will have its World Premiere on Sunday June 19th at the 70th Edinburgh International Film Festival, screening in the Best of British section.
The film commission has been out of office location scouting at Finse the last few days. Finse has previously doubled for the North Pole, the South Pole, the Northwest Passage and Siberia, and famously for the ice planet Hoth in Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back. Star Wars used the Finse lake, the glacier and its surroundings for some climactic action scenes - arguably some of the Star Wars series' most memorable sequences.
