New Icelandic Film Database Opens

A new database dedicated to Icelandic filmmaking has been opened at Kvikmyndavefurinn.is. It features more than 1,200 titles and eight thousand individuals, vísir.is reports.

“This has been a massive undertaking,” says Þór Tjörvi Þórsson at the Icelandic Film Centre, who developed the database in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. “We have been entering all the information and it has been quite a long process.”

The database is the most detailed on Icelandic film making. It also contains details on the cast and crew of each film, animated feature and TV program that has been produced in Iceland.

In addition, the site contains a variety of other information, including posters, trailers, premiere dates and so on.

The project was put in high gear two years ago, and people participating in an employment initiative organized by the Ministry of Welfare and the Directorate of Labor helped a great deal in getting the job done, Þór Tjörvi added.
