Tuba Atlantic is a Norwegian live action short film directed by Hallvar Witzø.

The film follows a 70-year-old man who has six days to live, and wants to reconcile with his brother after a lifetime of disagreement. When Inger, his local "Angel of Death" comes to help him reach happiness in his final days, he is given his opportunity.

The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film in 2012,[1] but the nomination was rescinded after the ceremony when it was discovered that the film had first aired on television before its theatrical release.[2]
