Reykjavik International Film Festival

Níu dagar í RIFF 2023! Miðasalan er hafin

The 20th edition of the Reykjavík International Film Festival will take place between September 23rd and October 8th, 2023.

Iceland’s major annual film event, the main purpose of RIFF is to offer a wide selection of groundbreaking, independent cinema, and to highlight the work of young and emerging filmmakers, by presenting only first and second works in the Grand Prix competition category New Visions. The objective of the festival is to increase general interest in independent cinema, increase the level of cinematic literacy and enrich film culture in Iceland by offering different cross-platform programs.


Rúnar Rúnarsson and VOLCANO at RIFF

Iceland native Director/Writer FIPRESCI AWARD International Critic’s Award

Icelandic director Rúnar Rúnarsson´s VOLCANO (Eldfjall).

Jury Statement

"For the sensitive yet unsentimental portrayal, built on powerful acting, of themes that are not usually the focus of filmmaking: aging with dignity in an intimate relationship, dealing with severe illness, caring and dying."

Films from the New Visions program are eligible.

On the jury are Alison Elizabeth Frank, Ph.D. from the University of Oxford (England); Nicole Santé, Chair of Dutch Board of Film Journalists (Holland) and Susanne Schütz, Arts Editor Rheinpfalz (Germany).


Icelandic director Rúnar Rúnarsson´s VOLCANO (Eldfjall), a love story that has transcended the years and now confronts the final chapter.

The Church of Iceland film award is presented for the sixth time this year.

Jury Statement

“Volcano is a realistic film, carried by a strong story, excellent acting and confident direction.

Volcano is a film about love in all of its diversity. It shows the intimacy and pleasure of lovers. It shows responsible and sacrifical love. Mesmerizing close-ups soften a harsh man and connect the audience and the protagonist.

Volcano is a film about family, about interaction that is both broken and whole. It shows despair, it mediates hope. It shows use closeness and annoyance, warmth and coldness, joy and pain.

Volcano is a film about growing old and reminds us of the human need for care and presence.

Volcano is a film that leaves the viewer with questions and compels a conversation.”
