Hlynur Pálmason

Director. Born 1984, Iceland. Graduated from the National Film School of Denmark in 2013 with the well-received "A Painter," a film about an egocentric artist whose carefully crafted universe is ruptured by the unexpected visit of his son.

Pálmason's short fiction "Seven Boats" (2014) was selected for competition at Toronto Film Festival.

"Winter Brothers" (2017) is Pálmason's feature film debut. The film won the Best Actor Award (to Elliott Crosset Hove) at its world premiere at the Locarno Festival and made its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
