From Iceland — Ghosts Need Financial Support

Ghosts Need Financial Support

Published November 5, 2013

A documentary about Icelandic ghosts needs financing from the public to hit the big screen, through Icelandic crowdfunding site

A group of young film makers, Collectif Panic, travelled across Iceland this summer to re-enact famous Icelandic ghost stories for a documentary, ‘Walkers’.

They are requesting at least 2.500 EUR to finish the project.

So far, they’ve filmed four stories, but pledgers of 4.000 EUR or more can choose one more Icelandic ghost story for the group to film and add to the documentary.

The ghost stories that the group have already filmed are the story about the mistress of farm Höfðabrekka (Höfðabrekku-Jóka), The Hairy Man (Loðni maðurinn) – both of which are set in South Iceland – The Brennivín Ghost (Brennivínsdraugurinn) set in Southwest Iceland and the story of Hesteyrar-Krita, set in the Westfjords.

Collectif Panic is a group of young and upcoming film makers from Iceland, France and Columbia who think Icelandic ghosts deserve some publicity through film. And rightly so!
