Welcome to the Icelandic Film Centre website. Here you will find information about the Icelandic Film Centre and how it works. The centre supports the production, distribution and promotion of Icelandic films and gathers and publishes information relevant to the film industry. Further, the centre works to advance film culture in Iceland and encourage stronger links between Icelandic filmmakers and the international film community.
The Together Project, a French/Icelandic comedy from the late writer/director Sólveig Anspach, has won the SACD Prize, which is given annually to a French-language film in the Directors' Fortnight section of the Cannes Film Festival. This is the second year in a row that a film with Icelandic ties has been honored at Cannes. Last year, Grímur Hákonarson's Rams won the Un Certain Regard Prize.more
