Seeking Asgard world premiere
On Wednesday 7th December we held the World Premiere screening of our new documentary film 'Seeking Asgard: Ski Life Stories from Iceland' to a full house at the Bíó Paradís in Reykjavik.
With almost 200 people turning out for the screening, we were overwhelmed with the support and positive reception of the film, which was warmly applauded as the title credits rolled.
We were grateful that several of the 'stars' of the film also joined us at the venue - alongside our friends and supporters from Asgard Beyond and Fjallakofinn - with Guðmundur Jakobsson (who features in the film) also discussing the film on Iceland's biggest national radio station Rás 2 in a lengthy 15 minute conversation on their drive time show.
Thank you to everyone who turned out and for the support of this project - especially those of you who backed us on Kickstarter. Being able to return to Iceland to screen the film to the people who it's made about first was important and only made possible by you.

The World Premiere event was followed by an online premiere in partnership with Disability Snowsport UK - as ticket holders were proided with a special advance look at the film before public release next year - helping to raise hundreds of pounds to help support DSUK and their amazing work in making snowsports accessible to everyone in Britain.
Again, a sincere thank you to everyone who attended to support the film and DSUK.
In further news, Seeking Asgard has now been selected to several film festivals - including the London Lift-Off Film Festival and Snowvision Film Festival in Russia - where we have been nominated within the top three for 'Best Cinematography' in their ski category.
Just to be nominated is a huge privilege and a great recognition of all the hard work that's gone in to the project over the past 12 months. Keep you fingers crossed for us, with winner set to be announced in the New Year!
Finally, the film will be available to view on our YouTube channel from January 5th 2023 - where you can now click to receive a notification and watch-a-long with fellow viewers from 8pm (see video below).
We're also planning to release episodes and bonus behind the scenes content from the project, so be sure to like and subscribe to our YouTube channel with push notifications on and stay tuned to our social channels for more Icelandic content coming soon!
