Screenings in Iceland

22nd November. This page is under construction, sorry for all the mess. The screening information is correct.


Iceland was a latecomer to the Global Premiere event but they worked double hard and pulled off an amazing screening. 

Despite word early on that Sigur Ros might attend the screening in Iceland, we were informed that when they found out Team Stupid weren't going to be there, they pulled out. (Who can blame them? Everyone wants to meet Team Stupid.)

However, the British Ambassador to Iceland did make it along, as did the Hon Svandís Svavarsdóttir otherwise known as the Icelandic Minister for the Environment as did Jóhannes Tómasson, Press Secretary for the Ministry for Transport and Professor Brynhildur Davidsdottir, Chairman of the Icelandic Scientific Committee for the Reduction of Greenhouse Gasses.

In the last email we received, on 17th September, there were 72 confirmed guests and a 152 maybes on Facebook.

Considering they started planning the event on 8th September we think that's pretty amazing.

On September 21st / 22nd, on the eve of the UN General Assembly's climate session, The Age of Stupid was launched internationally at the biggest and greenest live film event the world has ever seen. A-list celebrities walked the green carpet to an eco cinema tent in downtown New York, linked by satellite to 700 cinemas in 50+ countries. Take a look at the photos below from the events around the world and see the Global Premiere page for the full report.

The Age of Stupid DVD double-disc extravaganza, in 31 languages and with more than six hours of Extras is now available to pre-order here. From October 5th anyone anywhere can buy a license to screen The Age of Stupid in their school/pub/church/multinational oil corporation. First screening date: October 24th (=international day of climate action). More info from the Indie Screenings website or join the mailing list for a reminder when booking opens.
