Darkness comes to Reykjavík

The Reykjavík city council yesterday approved a request from the organizers of the Reykjavík International Film Festival to turn off all city lights for 30 minutes in the evening of 28 September this year, the Festival’s opening day, including all street lights. This is reported in all the main media.

Hrönn Marinósdóttir, Director of the Festival, told Morgunbladid that city residents would be able to see the world’s largest movie screen: “The sky itself. It’s very apt that it should be on the opening night of the Reykjavík International Film Festival.”
