The Home Game, featuring Smári Gunnarsson, Stephanie Thorpe, and Kári Viðarsson, alumni of Rose Bruford College’s European Theatre Arts BA (Hons) programme, won the Audience Award at the 20th Glasgow Film Festival.

Set against the picturesque backdrop of the Icelandic village of Hellissandur, the feel-good underdog story follows a team of misfits trying to get a home game in the Icelandic FA Cup on their 25 year old village football pitch that has never been played on.

The film won multiple awards at International Festivals and was recently nominated for Best Documentary at the Icelandic Academy Awards.

Other films shortlisted for the Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival include Viggo Mortensen’s Western, The Dead Don’t Hurt, Aylin Tezel’s romance, Falling Into Place, and The Teacher, a drama from British-Palestinian filmmaker Farah Nabulsi.
