There is a lot to get excited about coming from Iceland this year! Here are six brilliant new Icelandic films to look out for in 2023.

Beautiful Beings

Director: Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson

We will let you in on a secret – this film was very much in our Top 10 Nordic films of 2022, however the film had to have its UK release delayed, so now it will be a strong challenger for 2023!

We have harped on about this film so much now, so hope it is well received – the new release date for the UK is 30th January with Signature Entertainment releasing it on all digital platforms.

The Oscar long-listed brutal yet emotional story of a group of Icelandic youths will linger with you long after you have seen it, mainly for some absolutely outstanding performances. Do not sleep on this one!
