DIRECTOR NOTES:     KN

Kajsa Næss, born in 1970 in Norway, is one of Norway's leading animation directors. After graduating in 1996, she founded Mikrofilm together with Lise Fearnley. Her short films have won wide acclaim and prestigious awards.

Regarding her film Titina, Næss stated: "I have often based my films on real characters and events, and my feature debut Titina is no exception. The story is inspired by two larger-than-life — and a bit crazy — airship flights to the North Pole in 1926 and 1928, where the small terrier Titina came along"
