Introducing Film Culture:
The town of Borgarnes has about 3000 residents, is located 60 kilometers north of Reykjavik and has never had an official Cinema. The US Army introduced film going culture when it brought the first projector to Borgarnes in the 1940’s. Once upon a time it was possible to view box office hits each Sunday at the Oðal community center, which lasted up until 2012.

    What a film festival! The films on display were mesmerising and the hospitality was overwhelming. My film Polterheist was screened on the Friday night and the Q&A session was one of the best Ive been part of. This festival is destined to be one of the great film events in Iceland. Borgarnes is fabulous. I must make mention of the folks who run BFF - they are very passionate about film and really value film makers. Go and part of the festivities. Its a massive experience.

  • What a beautiful festival. Some truly fantastic programming that was incredibly diverse, challenging, funny and bold. The filmmakers, organisers and volunteers were some of the best human beings I've had the pleasure to meet. Quirky venues, beautiful hospitality and I hope to return again. A refined classy festival. Superb! 10/10
