As Philip told Nathaneal, “Come and see.” Srour plays Adam, a world-weary accountant who lives with his wife Lamia (Laëtitia Eïdo) in Nazareth. As Christian Arabs i...

9th Northern Wave International Short film festival Iceland

The Northern Wave International Film Festival will be celebrated from the 16th to the 18th of October 2015 in Grundarfjörður, Iceland. The philosophy of the festival, upon which its name is based, is Nouvelle Vague, or New Wave. Like Nouvelle Vague, Northern Wave attempts to revive the recognition of film making as an art form and the director as artist/author. An important goal of the festival is to develop relationships between experienced filmmakers and emerging filmmakers in Iceland and other countries. We are a  visionary festival that celebrates artistic and ground braking films by filmmakers who dare to take risks.

The festival consists of a short film (all genres) section and, for the first time ever in an Icelandic film festival, a music video section.  Bands will be encouraged to attend the festival and support their videos with a concert during the weekend. In this way, the musicians can make contacts with filmmakers and vice versa.

The Northern Wave weekend consist of a numerous screenings of a variety of international short films. The program also includes a lecture from a professional from the film industry, a fish soup competition at the local fish market and numerous concerts and events during the weekend.
