The RVK Feminist Film Festival begins today at Bíó Paradís, and has a fully-packed programme that will extend through Sunday night.

More than just a series of films, the festival covers a wide range of events, such as director Q&As, panel discussions, parties and much more. First Lady of Iceland and entrepreneur Eliza Reid will officially open the festival at Bíó Paradís tonight at 19:00, but doors will open at 18:30.

Many of the events of the RVK Feminist Film Festival are free, but the full festival pass is only 3,500 ISK, or you can buy tickets to individual screenings for only 1,250 ISK. So if you plan on seeing more than two films, the full pass is probably be the way to go. Either way, they can be purchased here.

“The festival will take place in the midst of the famed Icelandic winter, where you can experience world class film-making by female directors from all over the world, join in on eye opening Q&As and workshops, as well as lavish in all the Icelandic winter has to offer, Northern lights and all,” the organisers write in part. “This is an exceptional opportunity to be part of the first annual RVK Feminist Film Festival and mingle with fellow women film-makers. Women’s heritage in all corners of the world is in danger because there is not enough focus on their stories. Generations to come will want to see the cinematographic film heritage of their people, country and also other cultures. It’s an important part of human evolution.”

Between the excellent selection of films and the numerous related events listed in the programme, the RVK Feminist Film Festival promises to be an intriguing, engaging and fun event for all.
