Seven projects presented at Reykjavik-based film festival.

Seven forthcoming Icelandic film and TV projects were previewed at last week’s Stockfish Film Festival as short works-in-progress presentations.

The film is now finalizing sound and colour grading. Uggadottir met with African migrants living at a facility in [link »
