Icelandic Music at Tokyo Northern Lights Festival

The first Tokyo Northern Lights film festival was held in Japan’s capital city February 12-19, during which the documentaries Screaming Masterpiece and Where’s the Snow?, featuring Icelandic music, were screened.

The festival was based at the movie theater Eurospace with some events taking place in Uplink, a venue in the nearby Shibuya district.

Approximately 20 Nordic films were screened during the festival, including three films by Danish director Lars von Trier.

At the lobby of Eurospace there was an exhibition of photographs mainly taken during the 2007-2009 Iceland Airwaves festivals in Reykjavík.

The idea is to gradually turn the festival into an overall cultural festival dedicated to the northern countries.

Where’s the Snow? will be screened again in Tokyo in March at the Club Iceland’s third annual party, following a short presentation on Icelandic music by music blogger Yuka Ogura.
