About

Film Screenings and Film Industry Events
Quality International Award-Winning Films

Stockfish Film Festival aims to create a platform in Reykjavík to encourage collaboration between domestic and international film communities.

The festival was founded in 2015, as a reincarnation of the Reykjavík Film Festival (Kvikmyndahátíð í Reykjavík), which was established in 1978. It appeals to both people in the film industry and those who are interested in the wellbeing of international filmmaking.

The festival will screen some of the most up-and-coming art-house films in the world and invite international filmmakers to discuss the state of filmmaking, industry and community.

  • Films

    Over 30 handpicked award winning films will be screened during the festival.

  • Events

    In addition to films, there will be a number of international speakers, panels, Q&A sessions and master classes.

  • Featured Speakers

    Both national and international filmmakers will attend the festival and participate in the events.

Stockfish kvikmyndahátíðin í Reykjavík er kvikmyndahátíð kvikmyndagerðarmanna á Íslandi. Hátíðin opnar fyrir samtal og samstarf við erlendan kvikmyndaiðnað og er tækifæri fyrir reykvíska áhorfendur að upplifa það besta sem er að gerast í alþjóðlegri kvikmyndagerð í heiminum í dag. Stockfish Film Festival in Reykjavík verður haldin í annað sinn dagana 18-28. febrúar 2016 í Bíó Paradís. Hátíðin er haldin í samvinnu við Heimili kvikmyndanna, Bíó Paradís og fagfélög í kvikmyndaiðnaðinum á Íslandi. Hátíðin veitir almenningi aðgang að rjómanum af þeim kvikmyndum sem eru sýndar á kvikmyndahátíðum erlendis auk þess sem hún stendur fyrir fjöldanum öllum af viðburðum og heimsóknum erlendra kvikmyndagerðarmanna og fagaðila í kvikmyndagerð. Hátíðin er samstarfsverkefni allra hagsmunaaðila í kvikmyndageiranum á Íslandi. Markmiðið með Stockfish Film Festival er að þjóna samfélaginu sem hún sprettur úr, efla og auðga kvikmyndamenningu á Íslandi árið um kring og vera íslenskum kvikmyndaiðnaði lyftistöng bæði erlendis og innanlands.
