Actor Ingvar E. Sigurðsson won an award for Best Performance in the film A White, White Day at the Transilvania Film Festival (TIFF) this weekend. RÚV reports that this is the second award that Ingvar has won for the role in as many weeks; he was awarded the Louis Roederer Foundation Rising Star Award during the Cannes International Critics Week at the end of May.
Hvítur, Hvítur Dagur follows an off-duty police chief (Ingvar) who begins to suspect a local man of having had an affair with his late wife. It will premiere in Iceland on September 6.
The film is written and directed by Hlynur Pálmason, who won Best Director at TIFF last year for his first feature, Vinterbrødre (Winter Brothers). Vinterbrødre also won Best Film at Denmark’s 2017 Bodil Awards.
