The winner is Brúsi Ólason with his film Viktoría. He received 1 million krona in equipment rental with Kukl, the biggest equipment rental in Iceland that specalizes in servicing film-and TV productions
In the jury this year were Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson (director, Undir Trénu / Under the tree), Hlín Jóhannesdóttir (producer, Svanurinn / The Swan) Ísold Uggadóttir (director, Andið eðlilega / And breathe normally).
This is what they had to say about the film: “The winning film portrays a simple and lovely story, the protagonist is a warm and genuine humane person whose personal way to deal with obstacles and challenges touches the audience. The cinematography is refined and gives the film a poetic tone. Other technical aspects are well executed and this all translates into a well-balanced film.”
The festival congratulates Brúsi with the win and wishes him, and other contestants, the best of luck with future film projects.
All the shortfilms can be seen one more time at the festival today at 18. Tickets can be bought here.
