THE HOME GAME wins the Audience Award at Nordisk Panorama

The Home Game (Heimaleikurinn), a documentary by Smári Gunnarsson and Logi Sigursveinsson, won the Audience Award, won the City of Malmö‘s Audience Award at Nordisk Panorama Film Festival in Malmö, Sweden.

The documentary follows one man's dogged attempt to finally stage a home game on the football pitch his father created 25 years earlier. By registering the non-existent team of their fishing town to the Icelandic FA Cup he gives himself a 50/50 chance to fulfill his fathers dream. A team of underdogs registers for the tournament, which includes a fisherman and his son, a church warden – and a mother of three.


The Home Game had its premiere at Skjaldborg Documentary Film Festival in April, where it also won the audience award.
