A total of four feature film projects have been selected for this year's MIDPOINT Intensive Iceland. The four projects will participate in a 2-day workshop in Reykjavik starting this weekend, on March 10-11.

The participants are teams of writers, directors and producers who are working on their 1st or 2nd feature film – and they are:

Angel Dust – writer Bergthora Snaebjornsdottir, director Marteinn Thorsson & producer Gudrun Edda Thorhannesdottir

Exit – writer Nina Petersen & producer Lilja Osk Snorradottir

Happy Crappy '95 – writer Thorey Mjallhvit & writer/director Dogg Mosesdottir

Quake – writer/director Tinna Hrafnsdottir

The workshop will for the first time be run by Gyula Gazdag.
