. Mikael Torfason has written eight novels, ten plays, a Netflix original and three feature films, among which is Made in Iceland; he recently wrote The Valhalla Murders for Netflix.

The jury comprised Finnish actor Alma Pöysti, Hungarian writer and creative producer Gábor Krigler, Norwegian screenwriter-director Julie Andem, and Swedish journalist and television critic Mattias Bergqvist. The jury statement reads: “The winner is a show that has strong emotional stakes and a lead character ahead of her time. She refuses to play by the rules, just as this series is not afraid to push narrative boundaries, balancing between existentialism and comedy.” They picked the winner of the competition, which also included Finland’s Transport, Denmark’s The Shift, Sweden’s Suburbia and Norway’s Countrymen.

Blackport is set in the 1980s, in a small Icelandic fishing village. The story follows a married couple, Harpa and Grimur, as they build a small fishing empire along with their childhood friends. Due to the introduction of a new fishing quota system in the country, where the fishing grounds are privatised, the struggle for power results in a feud of jealousy, greed and betrayal. Their collective venture mirrors true events as they played out and dramatically changed the political landscape in Iceland, creating the country’s first billionaires.

Directed by Gísli Örn Gardarsson, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson and María Reyndal, and produced by Nana Alfredsdóttir, Gísli Örn Gardarsson, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson and Nina Dögg Filippusdóttir for Vesturport, the series premiered last December on Icelandic pubcaster RÚV and is set to be featured on ARTE as well. About Premium Content is handling the series internationally.
