Hommage to Árni Ólafur Ásgeirsson

Filmmaker Árni Ólafur Ásgeirsson passed earlier this year. He directed four feature films and made an essential contribution to the Icelandic film community as an artist and as a person. A true patron of cinema, he contributed to RIFF in various ways. RIFF would like to thank him for his contribution and offer his family our deepest condolences. His last feature, Wolka, opens the Icelandic Panorama section and offers a retrospective of Árni’s work.
