ISFiT-23 has elected a president
The new president ran with the theme 'Polarization' for ISFiT 2023.
Håtveit wants to focus on polarization as a global issue, that is not just political, but also manifests as economic polarization, gender polarization, political polarization and generation polarization.
— We are more polarized than we have ever been, how does this affect us? Do we need polarization? This may be the most prominent challenge we face today, and I believe Isfit is the right platform, Håtveit said in the introductory round.
Håtveit said she will prioritize the volunteers and their ownership of the festival.
— As a volunteer this year, I felt like I didn’t discover that many projects. This became very noticeable when it went digital. Showing these projects and making them visible for both students and volunteers will be a priority.
In addition to Håtveit, Melchior Blum ran for the presidency.
The results of the vote were as following:
- Åse Håtveit: 90 votes (60%)
- Melchior Blum: 44 votes (29,3%)
- Blank: 16 votes (10,7%)
