Pastiche Films is a film-
and video production company run by Tom Løberg Hovinbøle.
It is presently situated in Porsgrunn, Norway, after spending its
first years Trondheim. It was started in 2001 for the production
of the documentary NOR NOISE. The company is based upon the esthetical
ideas of the french nouvelle vougue of the 1960s, and the underground
film production mentality; no money in the budget doesn’t
mean no film can be produced. Since its initiation, PF has produced
a number of short films, documentaries, music videos and lately,
video installation works.
