The most remote Film Festival was launched for the first time July 2023 in Iceland's northernmost peninsula called Hornstrandir. One of Europe’s last wildernesses, Hornstrandir is a breathtakingly beautiful, hard-to-reach nature reserve of soaring mountains and precipitous cliffs. A place you can only reach by boat and where there is no mobile or internet connection.

The Hornstrandir Film Festival offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience for those willing to brave the untamed wilderness and join us at our remote locations. To qualify, you must possess a seasoned hiker's skills and a composure that remains unfazed by the unpredictability of nature. If you're up for the challenge and eager to immerse yourself in this unique cinematic adventure, apply now for the opportunity to trek alongside us in the rugged landscape of Hornstrandir in 2025.    Apply here

For those who prefer to journey to our festival from the safety and comfort of their homes, we invite you to sign up for our mailing list and be among the first to receive a lineup of riveting documentaries that challenge our perception of the environment, climate, and health.
