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,

Entries must have been produced within the last five years.
All films in a language other than English must be subtitled in English, we also welcome but it is not compulsory to have French as well as English to increase the possible markets, unless dialogue or commentary is unnecessary for comprehension and appreciation.
In the exceptional event that an un-subtitled print is accepted, English dialogue lists are required.

Reykjavik Independent Film Festival reserves the right to use excerpts from submitted work for promotional purposes only.
The Festival is open to the public as well as attending distribution and sales professionals.
We work with a number of accredited national and international press we have TV buyers and film buyers and distributors also attending, you will if your film is nominated have one to one meetings if you wish to talk business on your movie.
