Cubs win "Best Icelandic Short Film" at RIFF

Congratulations Nanna Kristín Magnúsdóttir & Eva Sigurðardóttir.

The jury's words about the film: “Exhibiting all the new challenges of being a single dad in our modern day society, Cubs manages to keep us in suspense from the first minute, as it explores taboos in father/daughter relationships. Per played by Ólafur Darri Ólafsson is planning a sleepover at his home for his daughter and although he is a great dad, we somehow expect him to fail at each decision. A well crafted film in all aspects with great performances, Cubs creates a perspective that is simultanously shocking and thought provoking.”

CUBS is written and directed by Nanna Kristín Magnúsardóttir and produced by Askja Films and Zik Zak Filmworks.

In each location he collaborated with local artists to create and perform a new song and each week he released the audio track and video performance. Shot by director Baldvin Z. each artist has their own unique story to tell, making this a diverse and evolving project.
