Documentary Crew Eyes Fundraising Finish Line

Future of Hope is a feature-length documentary about the positive and inspirational things to come out of Iceland since the economy crash and intends to improve the reputation and image of Iceland on a global scale.

The documentary crew is currently trying to raise USD 10,000 (EUR 7,400) in 40 days for the post-production stage.

They are half way there. “We hope it will continue to climb and the only way that it does is through everyone helping to spread the word,” says producer Heather Millard.

The film is primarily character-driven following the organic farming movement in Iceland, reinvention and entrepreneurship and renewable energy.

The documentary features interviews with Former President of Iceland, and the first female democratically-elected president in the world, Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, Gudjón Már of the Ministry of Ideas and Andri Snaer Magnason, director and author of the film and book Dreamland, among others.

“We do not intend to dwell on ‘what went wrong’ but instead look at the positive people, companies and ideas that Iceland now has and has had for many years but until now has been relatively unrecognized,” Millard explains.
