About the Event

Join us on the Red Carpet before entering into the Nordic International Film Festival’s days of gorgeous independent film.

The Opening Night Party will feature the New York premier of Beautiful Beings, the Icelandic nomination for the Academy Awards, directed by Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson.

Addi, a boy raised by a clairvoyant mother, decides to adopt a bullied misfit into his gang of outsiders. Left to their own devices, the boys explore aggression and violence but also learn about loyalty and love. As the group’s behavior escalates towards life-threatening situations, Addi begins to experience a series of dreamlike visions. Can his newfound intuition guide him and his friends back to a safer path, or will they dive irrevocably into further violence?
