Heartstone wins the Grand Prix at Febiofest

It seems every week we are writing about a new award that Icelandic film Heartstone has won. Over the weekend the film, directed by Gudmundur Arnar Gudmundsson, won the Grand Prix at Febiofest, the Prague International Film Festival.

The festival is known for its love of Icelandic film; this marks the third year in a row where an Icelandic feature wins the Grand Prix at Febiofest; Rúnar Rúnarsson‘s Sparrows won last year and Baldvin Z‘s Life in a Fishbowl won in 2015.

So far the film has won 27 awards around the globe.
