The Winner of Shortfish Announced

The results of the Stockfish short film competition “Shortfish”, were announced at the festival’s marvelous final ceremony last night. It was a hard choice for the jury and much debated but eventually they came to a final decision and chose the film FOXES as the winner. FOXES was directed by Mikel Gurrea and produced by Eva Sigurðardóttur and her company Askja Films. We congratulate Eva, Mikel and Askja Films with their victory!

Here’s what the jury had to say about the film:


A solid and sincere work, that is particularly relevant in today’s fast-paced world. The writer displays a strong sense of character, while the directing is equally compelling and effortless. In this simple story of fatherhood, a reality is depicted, that many will find deeply relatable.
