North x North Festival


Founded in 2016, the North by North Festival was a cultural festival that attempted to capture the spirit of Alaska and the Arctic. 

The creators of the festival outlined their mission as follows:

  • To Maximize public awareness and participation in Arctic and specifically Alaskan culture(s)


  • To create a participatory archive of arts and cultural events.

If you're interested in movies set in landscapes like the Arctic, check out Frozen 2!

Although the festival is no longer running, we hope to see the return of it soon! 


  North x North Film Festival isn't the only film festival to have stopped running. Middle Coast, Lifetree, Bay Street, SoCal Independent, North x North, Screentest, Minneapolis Underground, Julian Film Fest, San Antonio Independent Christian film festival, and Way Down, have all also ended their festivals.
