Reykjavik Independent Film Festival has as its objective the promotion of cinematographic art by presenting films of quality and entertainment.
The Reykjavik Independent Film Festival is held a few days before the Cannes International Film Festival, so as much business can be done for filmmakers attending if they wish, it is possible that each film nominated may be presented more than once.

Feature films, documentaries and short subjects of any genre on DVD, BluRay or Digital File, DCP are selected by invitation from entries to the festival,
