Að baki Stockfish standa fagfélög kvikmyndagerðarfólks á Íslandi og er hátíðin því um leið einskonar fagmessa íslenskrar kvikmyndagerðar. Auk þess að bjóða upp á gott og vandað úrval kvikmynda stendur Stockfish fyrir fjölda spennandi viðburða og heimsóknum erlendra kvikmyndagerðarmanna úr fremstu röð. Stjórn Stockfish er efst í huga þakklæti til allra sem unnið hafa að undirbúningi hátíðarinnar og gert hana að veruleika og einnig til þeirra aðila sem með stuðningi sínum hafa gert okkur kleift bjóða upp á þessa einstöku hátíð.

Velkomin á Stockfish Welcome to Stockfish Stórkostleg kvikmynd er eins og ljúfengur kvöldverður sem örvar skilningarvitin. Markmið Stockfish er einmitt að bjóða upp á fjölbreytt hlaðborð þar sem boðið er upp á fremstu rétti kvikmyndagerðar dagsins í dag. Það er von okkar sem höfum unnið að hátíðinni að hún fylli þig af innblæstri, næri sál þína og skilji eftir ógleymanlegar upplifanir. There is nothing better than watching a remarkable film that truly broadens your perspective and triggers your senses. That’s exactly the experience that Stockfish aims to give by offering the best that world cinema has to offer today. It is our sincere hope that attending the festival leaves you with inspiring experiences and heartfelt memories. Marzibil S. Sæmundardóttir, framkvæmdastjóri Stockfish Film Festival / Stockfish festival director

Stockfish is held in collaboration with all the film-industry guilds in Iceland and is therefore Iceland´s film industry convention of sorts. Besides offering a wide and fine selection of films, Stockfish hosts an array of exciting events and visits from some of the world´s best filmmakers. The board of Stockfish truly appreciates the thought and work put into the festival to make it what it is, and to those who have gracefully sponsored it and made it possible for us to offer you to this unique festival.

persónulegu reynslu frá mismunandi hliðum kvikmyndagerðar og ræða jafnrétti kynjanna í kvikmyndaiðnaðinum í kjölfar #MeToo. Framundan er veisla fyrir alla þá sem njóta kvikmynda og veisluborðið er alþjóðlegt. Horfum og njótum. Gleðilega hátíð.

Stockfish 2018 Reykjavíkurborg fagnar Stockfish kvikmyndahátíðinni sem mun nú í fjórða sinn lífga upp á marsmánuð með hlaðborði nýrra kvikmynda. Hvað er betra en að hverfa inn í rökkvaðan kvikmyndasal og horfa á fræðandi og skemmtilegar myndir - gleyma sér um stund. Gott bíó er nefnilega ekki bara glens og gaman. Kvikmyndir hafa áhrif. Við kynnumst óvenjulegu fólki, fáum nýtt sjónarhorn, lærum um ný málefni og fáum innsýn inn í hugarheim sem er okkur oft algjörlega framandi. Hátíð eins og Stock Fish er ómissandi vettvangur fyrir allt kvikmyndagerðarfólk og okkur er heiður að öllum þeim erlendum gestum sem leggur leið sína hingað til að mynda tengsl við innlenda og erlenda gesti sem sækja hátíðina heim. Fjölmargir leikstjórar, handritshöfundar og framleiðendur kynnast kollegum frá ýmsum löndum. Af þessu geta, og hafa sprottið, samvinnuverkefni, sem eru ómetanleg fyrir kvikmyndaiðnaðinn. Fjölmargar kvikmyndir verða sýndar á hátíðinni að þessu sinni og hafa margar þeirra unnið til verðlauna á erlendum kvikmyndahátíðum og ekki verið sýndar á Íslandi áður. Hin árlega stuttmyndakeppni, Sprettfiskurinn, verður á sínum stað. Veitt eru vegleg verðlaun sem styðja við kvikmyndagerð ungs og upprennandi kvikmyndagerðarfólks á Íslandi. Bransadagar hátíðarinnar hafa notið vinsælda og í ár verður haldið málþing þar sem kvikmyndagerðarkonur frá Norðurlöndunum segja frá sinni

Film festivals are an essential part of city life, and the City of Reykjavík welcomes the Stockfish Film Festival, which will now be held for the fourth time. What’s better than sitting down in the cinema and enjoying a good film, and forgetting the hustle and bustle of every day life for a while. Movies can affect people in so many different ways. They are a feast for the vision, we learn to seet hings from different perspectives, learn new issues and get insight into a world of mind that is often completely foreign to us. Festivals like Stockfish are an indispensable platform for professionals who are attending the festival. It encourages collaboration between domestic and international film makers which has proven invaluable to the film industry. The films on the Festival this year, are from various countries, many have won prizes at foreign film festivals and have not been shown in Iceland before. The annual short film show, Sprettfiskurinn, will be in place. Awards for the best short film is intended to support the cinemamaking of young and aspiring filmmakers in Iceland. In recent years there has been a lot of discussion on gender equality in the film industry and this year there will be a seminar where film-making women from the Nordic countries share their personal experiences from different sides of cinema making and discuss gender equality in the film industry following #MeToo. I encourage you to visit the Stock Fish Festival in Bíó Paradís and enjoy the feast! Dagur B. Eggertsson Borgarstjóri / Mayor

kúgun frá þeim sem eru í minnihluta. Við eigum öll að hafa jöfn tækifæri og réttindi. Þessi gildi endurspeglast í góðri kvikmyndagerð og þess vegna leggur Evrópusambandið áherslu á að styrkja kvikmyndaiðnaðinn í gegnum MEDIA áætlunina, sem er hluti af Creative Europe sjóðnum. Íslensku kvikmyndagerðarfólki er vel kunnugt um þessa sjóði ESB, því úr þeim hafa komið styrkir meðal annars til sjónvarpsþáttanna Fanga og Ófærðar, kvikmynda eins og Fúsi, Hrútar og Svanurinn. Einnig höfum við stutt við Bíó Paradís, sem og RIFF kvikmyndahátíðina. Ég er viss um að hið góða samstarf sem við eigum á þessu sviði sem öðrum muni eflast og aukast enn á komandi árum. Njótið hátíðarinnar!

Njótum evrópskrar menningar! Enjoy European culture! Við hjá sendinefnd Evrópusambandsins gleðjumst mjög yfir því að styðja enn á ný við Stockfish kvikmyndahátíðina, sem hefur sannað sig sem fastur liður í menningarlífi Íslendinga. Það er okkur sönn ánægja að geta stuðlað að því að fyrsta flokks evrópskar kvikmyndir séu sýndar á Íslandi. Í ár kemur langstærsti hluti myndanna á Stockfish frá löndum Evrópusambandsins og er það vel. Frá Kýpur til Portúgals og frá Finnlandi til Möltu liggja langar leiðir. En þegar í kvikmyndasalinn er komið er enginn slóði of langur að feta, úr einum menningarheim í annan. Góðar kvikmyndir lýsa fjölbreytileika ólíkra þjóða um leið og þær sýna okkur hve mikið við eigum sameiginlegt. Þetta á ekki síst við um myndir frá Evrópu, heimsálfu sem hafði barist innbyrðis svo ótal oft áður en Evrópusambandið var stofnað 1952. Í Evrópu erum við svo heppin að tala fjölda tungumála, trúa á alls konar guði og enga, aðhyllast ótal stjórnmálaskoðanir og eiga óteljandi listhefðir. Ef til vill jók þetta áhættuna á stríði okkar í milli fyrr á öldum, en nú er þetta það sem sameinar okkur. Fjölbreytileikinn. Virðing fyrir hvort öðru. Samstaða. Við erum stolt af sérkennum okkar en líka af sérkennum nágranna okkar. Við þolum hvorki yfirgang hinna sterkari né

The Delegation of the European Union to Iceland is delighted to once again support the Stockfish Film Festival, which has proved itself to be a fixture in the Icelandic cultural scene. We are truly happy to be able to play our part in bringing high quality European films to Iceland. This year, I’m pleased to say, most of the films on show at Stockfish come from the EU countries. There may be huge physical distances from Cyprus to Portugal and from Finland to Malta. But once we enter the cinema, no amount of kilometres can keep two cultures apart. Good films portray the diversity of different nations while simultaneously displaying how much we all have in common. This in particular applies to movies from Europe, a continent whose countries had been at war countless times before the birth of the Union in 1952. In Europe, we are lucky to speak many languages, to believe in many gods and none, to be partisans of various political views and to possess countless traditions in the arts. In the past, this diversity may in some degree have increased the likelihood of warfare between us, but now it is what unites us. Diversity. Respect for one another. Solidarity. We are proud of our special traits while at the same time we also take pride in our neighbours’ special traits. We cannot stand the aggression of the strong nor oppression by a minority. We should all have equal rights and opportunities. These values are reflected in all good film productions and therefore the European Union puts emphasis on strengthening the film industry through the MEDIA programme, which is a part of the Creative Europe fund. The people in the Icelandic film industry are well aware of these


EU funds, since they have received grants for TV shows like Prisoners and Trapped, for films like Virgin Mountain, Rams and the Swan. We have also supported Bíó Paradís as well as the RIFF film festival. I am confident that the good cooperation we enjoy in this field as in others will be increased and strengthened in the years to come. Enjoy the festival!

Hógvær saga tveggja ólíkra einstaklinga sem opna sig tilfinningalega fyrir hvort öðru í mjög svo ólíklegum vinskap.

Myndin fjallar um transkonuna Marinu sem missir unnusta sinn skyndilega og veröld hennar umbreytist í kjölfarið. Hún þarf að standa með sjáfri sér og berjast enn á ný við öflin sem hafa haldið henni aftur allt hennar líf.

Margverðlaunuð og tilnefnd mynd sem hefur fengið lof gagnrýnenda.

The film tells of Marina, who is in a loving relationship with older partner Orlando who unexpectedly dies. Marina, who is transgender, faces discrimination and hostility from both Orlando’s family and government officials while also contending with her devastating grief. A Fantastic Woman is a touching and a harrowing film from the award-winning director Sebastián Lelio. The lead actress Daniela Vega has been praised for her acting, but she is a transgender like the main character the plays. The film was nominated for a Golden Globe as the best foreign film and is nominated for a Oscar in 2018 as well in the same category.

Isabelle, listakona og fráskilin móðir á sextugs aldri, á ákaflega erfitt með að fá og hvað þá vita hvað það er sem hún vill út úr lífinu. Myndin fjallar af listilegu innsæi um hversu flókið lífið og sambönd milli fólks geta verið þar sem áhorfandinn fylgist með leit Isabellu að sannri ást.

After witnessing one of their fights, their son disappears… Eerie thriller of hypnotic, mysterious intensity from Leviathan director. Russian director Andrei Zvyagintsev has produced another masterpiece in this apocalyptic study of a failed marriage and the subsequent disappearance of a child. - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian The film won the Jury price in Cannes and was nominated for Golden Globe. The film is also nominated for an Oscar as best foreign film this year.
