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.
