The films selected for Shortfish 2022! - Stockfish Film Festival

The films selected for Shortfish 2022!

3/16/2022

The goal of the Shortfish competition is to draw attention to aspiring Icelandic filmmakers and provide funding for future projects. 

The winner in each category will receive a cash prize sponsored by Síminn as well as a deposit for equipment rental at Kukl. In addition Síminn will have a special Shortfish award screening, where all 4 award winning films will be shown, both in linear program and on Síminn TV for the next 12 months. 

There is a significant change to Shortfish in 2022 with the aim to acknowledge a broader group of filmmakers and projects. Shortfish now has four competition categories divided into fiction, documentary, experimental, and artistic music video projects.

Iceland is clearly booming with talented filmmakers, close to 100 projects were submitted into the competition which is a record number!

Juries for the Shortfish 2022 are:

Documentary – Anni Ólafsdóttir, Emanuele Gerosa and Hrafnhildur Gunnarsdóttir

Experimental – Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir, Sigurður Guðjónsson and Vera Sölvadóttir
