The Home Game

6 and 7 March, 2024

The real story of how a plucky village football team became determined to play a home game in Iceland’s FA Cup is a celebration of team spirit for underdogs everywhere.

In 1994 one man in the Icelandic village of Hellissandur (population: 369) had a dream to build a football pitch and play a home game in the country’s FA Cup. He managed his first objective, but the side drew an away game and fell to a 10-0 defeat. Fast-forward to 2020 and his son takes up the gauntlet, inviting players of all ages, abilities and genders to train for Reynir FC with the same FA Cup goal in mind. Smari Gunn and Logi Sigursveinsson’s documentary follows their journey in an uplifting celebration of team and community spirit for underdogs everywhere.

Icelandic and English with English subtitles.

The screening on 6 March will be followed by a screening with Logi Sigursveinsson and Smari Gunn.
