BÍÓ PARADÍS SEEKS FRIENDS

Bíó Paradís – the lonely cinema at the edge of the world

We at Bíó Paradís need your help. We’re looking for friends – people like you, lovers of independent and art-house films, fans of Iceland and its cinema – to help us reach our goals and solidify our future.

Who are we?

Bíó Paradís is a nonprofit art-house cinema in Reykjavík, Iceland. In fact, it’s the first and only art-house cinema in Iceland. It’s the home of the Icelandic film community. It plays a vital role in developing Iceland’s young but growing film culture.

Six years ago we were only a dream. Commercial cinema had fled to the suburbs and there was nowhere to see foreign and independent films, cult films and classics on the big screen. So the professional filmmaking guilds came together, convinced the city to throw in a bit of money, and took over a defunct cinema in the heart of downtown Reykjavík. In these six years we’ve managed to convert to digital projection, nurture relationships with filmmakers and content providers, and build a small but loyal audience.

So we’ve come a long way but we still have a long way to go. The challenges we face are too great to be met by our modest public endowment, so we’re reaching out to you to help us get to the next level and maintain our role as one of Iceland’s premier cultural institutions.
