Knutur Haukstein Olafsson graduated from The Film School with his graduation film “Inferno” in 2015.
Since then he has had great success at various film festivals and now has added to the awards by winning Best experimental film of the year at the Onrios Film Festival.
The Onrios film festival is a monthly festival that is set up so that the films that win each month of the year can advance to the annual competition, or “The Best of Year”, that is held in Aosta in Italy. Knut´s film won for the “Best experimental film” in February this year, and was then honored to be nominated to the annual awards along with four others and ended up winning first prize in the category. We can add that known filmmakers like Paul Sorvino of “Goodfellas” and Sir David Attenborough have won monthly awards at this festival.
