Band is the make or break it story of an all-female Icelandic art rock band that probably will not make it and isn't really a band. Band is a comedy of failures, seen through the eyes of three women of “The Post Performance Blues Band" who give themselves only one year to finally become popstars or quit forever. Each on the brink of 40, they find themselves again coming of age, reckoning with their artistic dreams & the meaning of friendship as they juggle the pressures of motherhood.

Band was written and directed by Örnólfsdóttir and produced by Heather Millard and Thórdur Jónsson for Compass Films.

The Icelandic project Adventureland, The Arrow by Thórunn Lárusdóttir will be presented in the Nordic Co-Production Market. Producers/directors will get the chance to pitch their project in search for for co-production partners, sales and financing. 

Band will also be screened at closed market screenings in the industry section, New Nordic Films, along with Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir's feature film A Letter from Helga.
