Stockfish Festival is happy to invite Physical Cinema Festival programmer Helena Jónsdóttir to compile a program we call NEW NARRATIVES – creative films and video art. The program is a combination of physical performance, visual arts, sound design, music and cinema together in an exciting mix. The short films and installations are innovative and refreshing in their approach. Some films have un- and conventional storylines, some are abstract, and other installations deconstruct or render a poetic experience of time and space. Celebrating the creativity in the field of film and video with the audience. The works are created by well known film- and video artists around the world. Majority of the program has never been screened in Iceland and we have several premiers. Collaboration with the Icelandic Film Museum where we will screen hidden treasures. The video installations and films are screened in the cinema rooms at Bio Paradís, and as video installations in Bió Paradís, Instillations at Reykjavík City hall, The nordic house and Tjarnarbíó. At Mengi there will be live concerts with projections. Outdoor projections will be at several places in the center of Reykjavík City during the festival dates. Over 20 works will be screened at the festival.
