Stockfish 2022 Stockfish kvikmyndahátíðin er ávallt mikið fagnaðarefni en nú er enn ríkari ástæða til að gleðjast, þar sem loks er hægt að halda hátíðina með hefðbundnu sniði eftir tveggja ára skakkaföll af völdum Covid-19. Erlendir gestir taka nú aftur þátt í þessari miklu kvikmyndaveislu, sem haldin verður í áttunda sinn dagana 24. mars til 3. apríl. Það er eitthvað einstakt, jafnvel töfrandi, við augnablikið þegar ljósin slokkna í bíósalnum, gestirnir þagna og sameinast í eftirvæntingunni og ánægjunni sem fylgir því að horfa á vandaða kvikmynd. Gestir Stockfish eiga von á góðu, því dagskráin inniheldur meðal annars sýningar á yfir 20 sérvöldum alþjóðlegum verðlaunamyndum. Þá verður frumsýnd teiknimyndaserían My Year of Dicks í leikstjórn hinnar íslensku Söru Gunnarsdóttur, en höfundur seríunnar er bandaríski handrits- og metsöluhöfundurinn Pamela Ribon sem meðal annars hefur unnið að stórum kvikmyndaverkefnum fyrir Disney.

There is something special, magical even, about the moment when the lights turn off in the theater, and collectively we silently unite in the anticipation of the unique satisfaction a great film brings. Guests of the Stockfish Film Festival are in for a treat, as the ambitious program includes more than twenty hand-picked award-winning international films. The animated series My Year of Dicks, directed by Sara Gunnarsdóttir, will be premiered at the Stockfish Film Festival. The film is an adaptation of a series written by bestselling author Pamela Ribon, who is also a highly regarded screenwriter and collaborator on several popular Disney movies.

Stockfish hátíðin þjónar mikilvægu hlutverki við að efla, auðga og kynna íslenska kvikmyndamenningu jafnt innanlands sem utan. Á Bransadögum kemur fagfólk úr kvikmyndaiðnaði saman, fræðist, sækir vinnustofur og skapar dýrmæt tengsl á milli íslensks og erlends kvikmyndagerðarfólks.

The Stockfish Film Festival serves an important role in the reinforcement, enrichment and promotion of Icelandic film culture and filmmaking, domestically and internationally. From its inception, the festival has aspired to create a platform to encourage collaboration between domestic and international film communities. During the festival there will be ample opportunity to dive deep, and to participate and listen to a series of panels and seminars on a wide variety of topics as well as a good number of networking events.

Fyrir hönd borgarinnar óska ég aðstandendum og skipuleggjendum Stockfish hátíðarinnar innilega til hamingju með fjölbreytta og spennandi dagskrá. Þá hvet ég alla til að leggja leið sína í Bíó Paradís og upplifa töfrana! The Stockfish Film Festival is always anticipated with great enthusiasm but this year there is an even greater reason to rejoice, as it is finally possible to host this great event without any Covid-19 related restrictions. Guests from around the world will be attending and participating again when the festival takes place on March 24th – April 3rd.

On behalf of the City of Reykjavík, I want to congratulate the organizers of the Stockfish Film Festival for hosting this ambitious program. I also encourage everyone to visit Cinema Paradise and experience the magic! Dagur B. Eggertsson Borgarstjóri / Mayor

Njótum evrópskrar menningar! Enjoy European culture! Meðan ég hripa niður þessar línur í mars 2022 er auðvelt að finnast sem heimur okkar hafi farið rakleiðis úr einni krísu í aðra. Síðustu vikur hafa verið ljúfsárar. Hér í Evrópu erum við loksins að komast út úr löngum Covid heimsfaraldri og getum aftur lifað lífinu til fullnustu. Við getum ferðast, notið félagsskapar annarra og sótt menningarviðburði án hamla. Ég er ótrúlega ánægð að Stockfish getur í ár farið fram aftur að fullu í kvikmyndahúsi í stað heimabíós. En stríðið í Úkraínu, og þjáningarnar sem það veldur, varpar þungbærum skugga á líf okkar. Menningin hélt okkur á floti í gegnum faraldurinn – létti lund. Þökk sé kvikmyndum gátum við hlegið, flúið okkar daglega vanagang og til fjarlægra landa. Kvikmyndagerð, umfram aðrar listir, leyfir okkur að sjá okkur sjálf í sögum annarra og þar af leiðandi að búa til samkenndartengsl. Og ég tel að samkenndin, ásamt samstöðu fólks og þjóða, sé það sem muni hjálpa okkur að sigrast á núverandi þrengingum. Allar götur frá því að ég flutti til Íslands hef ég verið dolfallin yfir ríkidæmi og úrvali menningarviðburðanna hér. Samt sem áður, sem kvikmyndaáhugamaður frá fyrstu tíð, á Stockfish sérstakt pláss í dagbók minni. Það gleður mig að enn á ný hafi Evrópusambandið getað ljáð Stockfish aðstoð okkar og ég hlakka til að sjá ykkur á opnunarhátíðinni! As I’m writing these lines in March 2022, it’s easy to feel that our world has seamlessly moved from one crisis to another. The past few weeks have been bittersweet. In Europe, we are finally emerging from a long COVID pandemic, able

once again to live our lives to the fullest – travel, enjoy the company of others, and attend cultural events without restrictions. I’m incredibly pleased that this year, Stockfish could fully return from a virtual format to cinema seats. On the other hand, the war against Ukraine, and the suffering it causes, casts a very heavy shadow over our lives. Throughout the pandemic, culture kept us going, kept our spirits afloat. Thanks to film, we were able to laugh, escape outside our daily routines, and travel to far-away lands. But film, more than any other form of art, also allows us to imagine ourselves in the stories of others and, consequently, to create bonds of empathy. And I believe that it is empathy, together with solidarity – solidarity between people, and between nations - that will help us overcome also the current crisis. Ever since I moved to Iceland, I have been constantly impressed by the wealth and variety of the cultural events on offer here. Still, as a lifelong film-fan, Stockfish has a special place in my calendar. I’m pleased that, once again, the European Union could lend Stockfish our support, and I look forward to seeing you at the festival opening!
