IceDocs 2020-featured

The second edition of Iceland’s Documentary Festival, IceDocs, is set to kick off this week, 15 – 19 July 2020.

The well-received festival that launched last year takes place in Akranes (45km North of #Reykjavík) and will be made up of documentaries, a children’s program, music selections, quizzes, and more (hikes, Lighthouse-based concerts, yoga sessions, etc.), set against the natural beauty of the one of a kind countryside. With Iceland’s tackling of the #Coronavirus, one of the world’s most efficient, IceDocs 2020 will be one of the more intimate festival events of the year. Still, precautions are in place and the festival will also feature an online selection.
