Earlier this year it was announced that the Faroe Islands International Minority Film Festival was cancelled due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. But now, thanks to the good results in the Faroe Islands, organizers now have the courage to go ahead with the FIMFF 2020, in a smaller version.
According to the festival’s website, it will be held on the 24-27 July. It opens at 7:30 PM on 24 July at the Nordic House in Tórshavn. A very relevant film ‘The Fight for Greenland’ will be opening this year’s festival. The film is about four Greenlanders who, in their own way, want change in Greenland.
As previously mentioned, this summer will have a small scale version of the festival, however, organizers promise interesting features, short films, documentaries and a kids screening this year as there have been in previous years.
