Hlynur Palmason


I never have a clear plot idea in mind, I wait and see when a film takes off and then follow it wherever it wants to go. I think this that’s inspiring.    


Hlynur (b. 1984) was born and raised in Hornfirðingur but has been living in Copenhagen since 2009.
Hlynur graduated from Den Danske Filmskole in 2013 and has received a lot of praise for his short films. His first full-length film WINTER BROTHERS (Vinterbrødre) was selected at Locarno Festival, Toronto IFF and Helsinki IFF among others where it was highly awarded.
Hlynur also works as an artist and has hosted a number of paintings and photo exhibitions.
