Iceland has become an attractive option for filming, offering a wide variety of breathtaking locations along with experienced crews and production friendly infrastructure, with 25% reimbursement of costs incurred in the production of films and television programmes.

Rvk Studios offers full production service for all needs of international productions, based on extensive local knowledge and international experience. Understanding the needs and expectations of foreign filmmakers we provide reliable production support for feature films, television, commercials and music videos in Iceland and Greenland.

Iceland is highly accessible for film makers. This does not only refer to the country itself with daily flight connections to most major hubs on both sides of the Atlantic. When in Iceland an amazing variety of scenery is within easy reach and high quality accommodation and catering facilities are never far away.

From mid-May to mid-August the sun only sets for around 3 hours a day, and it is effectively light for the whole 24-hour period. This phenomenon is known as the "midnight sun" and it creates a sort of lingering twilight in the nighttime hours. In contrast, there are around 4-5 hours of effective daylight during mid-winter. But Iceland's inexpensive geothermal energy means that streets and buildings are well-lit during winter darkness.

RVK Studios is owned by Baltasar Kormakur, who started his career in Iceland directing and producing films; 101 Reykjavik, Little Trip to Heaven, Jar City and The Deep. Most recently Baltasar directed, produced, co-scripted and played the leading role in the film 'The Oath'. Baltasar's blockbuster film, Everest grossed over $200 Millions worldwide and his two previous projects 2 Guns and Contraband both topped the US box office and grossed over $225 Millions worldwide combined. His latest blockbuster Adrift with Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin will be released in June 2018.
