Just before the Norwegian Film Fund is to enter a period of reorganization, and set to become part of the new Norwegian Film Institute, documentary consultant Bodil Cold-Ravnkilde has granted funding to the documentary series “Valdres”. At a board meeting Monday March 10th, 1,350,000 NOK was awarded to the series that is going to be aired on TV2 in 2009.
