Anna has been selected for The Northern Wave International Film Festival that will be celebrated from the 3rd to the 5th of March 2010. The philosophy of the festival, upon which its name is based, is Nouvelle Vague, or New Wave. Like Nouvelle Vague, Northern Wave attempts to revive the recognition of filmmaking as an art form and the director as artist/author. An important goal of the festival is to develop relationships between experienced filmmakers and emerging filmmakers in Iceland and other countries. We are a visionary festival that celebrates artistic and ground braking films by filmmakers who dare to take risks.
The festival will consist of a short film section and, for the first time ever in an Icelandic film festival, a music video section. Bands will be encouraged to attend the festival and support their videos with a concert during the weekend. In this way, the musicians can make contacts with filmmakers and vice versa.

Anna has been selected for the official selection of the Maverick Film Competition SHORT FILMS at the 20st Cinequest Film Festival.
"Cinequest is honored that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has elected to recognize the Cinequest Film Festival as a qualifying festival for the Short Films category for the Annual Academy Awards®"
"Cinequest remains one of the last big festival bastions for the discovery of new and emerging film artists. Cinequest Film Festival (CQFF) presents a dynamic 12-day event of 200 international films with over 400 film artists, technologists, and professionals from 34 countries in attendance. Over 10,000 artists have attended CQFF to date.
Exhibiting unique social and artistic visions from around the globe, Cinequest’s dynamic festival engages audiences in thought-provoking dialogue, giving film artists and film lovers alike an opportunity to connect. Furthermore, Cinequest provides cutting edge technology and movie-making forums to empower professionals and students.
Although 80,000 attend CQFF, the four-block proximity of its state-of-the-art venues along with Cinequest’s renowned hospitality, makes the festival experience as warm and personal as it is electrifying."
