Attention please, movie lovers! The fourth edition of the Stockfish Film Festival & Industry Days will be held at Bíó Paradís from the 1st to the 11th of March 2018. This film festival focuses on national and international art-house movies, and screens award-winning movies from all over the world.

The roots of the festival reach back to 1978, when the Reykjavík Film Festival was established. In 2015 the festival was revitalized, and with it a new name was introduced: Stockfish Film Festival.

Stockfish connects Icelandic and international film industry professionals and aims to be a breeding ground for new collaborations and ideas. It’s open to the  public and the best artistic movies are shown. Among the movies shown are: Loveless, What Will People Say, Communion, The Golden Dawn Girls and A Fantastic Woman. Loveless and A Fantastic Woman are both nominated for an Oscar!
