Flat Earth Film Festival - Seyðisfjörður

Flat Earth Film Festival screens a curated selection of international films each year in February. The sister festival of List í Ljósi was born from a weekly cinema club started by Arndis Yr Hansdóttir and Austin Thomasson in the town of Seyðisfjörður. The film festival will take place at Herðubreið in the old cinema built-in 1958 by the architect Guðjón Samúelsson. 

The festival aims to bring to life the spirit of movie-going, sharing films with one another with each day offering a new and unique immersive experience in the cinema. Each day offers a 2-hour experience of films, panel discussions, and an emphasis on the unexpected. 

The festival is screening a wide variety of genres and is excited to celebrate everything from experimental to animation, shorts to feature-length documentaries. The festival is showcasing the films of locals in the town of Seyðisfjörður, as well as Icelandic, American, European, Scandinavian from large productions to those with no budget. 

Flat Earth Film Festival promises to offer its audiences an authentic experience of going to the movies, incorporating performative acts that bookend each screening, performance-scapes that feel as though they’ve fallen right out of the silver screen, breathing in theatrical flesh for your entertainment. 

Flat Earth Film Festival is free to the public. Popcorn included with admission.

Towns & Villages

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors obvious to everyone. 

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
