Filming production in Iceland in year 2020

Filming production in Iceland in year 2020
Iceland, with its sparsely populated but spacious North Atlantic geography, advanced filming infrastructure, production incentives and experienced crews, had long been an attractive shooting location.

In year 2020 several movies and TV series were shot in Iceland, this inspite of the Covid-19 pandemic. According to Icelands's film commissioner, Einar Hansen Tómasson, he started receiveing fielding queries from producers and studios in Los Angeles, New York and Europe during the spring. The fact that Iceland is sparsely populated but spacious, as well as the country's success in the combat against Codid-19 infections within the country, contributed to this interest.

Despite Covid-19, Iceland managed to bring three film projects, three documentaries, nine TV shows, two music videos and 15 commercials to the country. About 15 national film and television projects were also produced during 2020. Examples of projects shot in Iceland last year are, The Challenge:Total Madness, Trapped, Katla, Gordon Ramsay:Uncharted, Running Wild, One Strange Rock, You vs Wild, War of the Worlds.

Currently, a number of projects are either starting or preparing their productions in Iceland, accorording to the film commissioner.
