About Stockfish

Stockfish Film Festival in Reykjavík is the film industry’s festival in Iceland. It was founded in 2015, as a reincarnation of the Reykjavík Film Festival (Kvikmyndahátíð í Reykjavík), which was established in 1978.

The festival aims to create a platform in Reykjavík to encourage collaboration between domestic and international film communities and gives the general audience an opportunity to see some of the most up-and-coming art-house films in the world.

The 8th edition of the festival takes place from the 24th of March – 3rd of April 2022 and is held in Bíó Paradís and in collaboration with the Icelandic Film Centre and all of the professional film associations in Iceland: The Icelandic Filmmakers Association, The Film Director’s Guild of Iceland, Association of Icelandic Film Producers, Icelandic Actors Guild, The Icelandic Cinematographers Society and The Icelandic Dramatists’ Union.
