“This is a once in a lifetime event for many people,” says Hallfríður Þóra Tryggvadóttir, project manager with Reykjavík International Film Festival, about a film screening that will take place in connection with the festival, deep inside a cave on the 3rd of September.

Three Icelandic short films will be shown inside the cave: Ástarsaga by Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir, Hvalfjörður by Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson, and the Oscar-nominated Síðasti bærinn by Rúnar Rúnarsson.

The cave’s location has yet to be disclosed, but organisers claim it’s in the vicinity of the greater capital area. The tour is guided by professional guides with Arctic Adventures and drinks and a light snack is included in the ticket price. Tickets are available online.

The 12th RIFF takes place in Reykjavík between 24th of September and the 4th of October.
