Iceland has a notable cinema film industry. There are many actors to list who have caught international attention. The most famous film, and the only one to be nominated for the Academy Award and European Film Awards, is Children of Nature, directed by Friðrik Þór Friðriksson. This film brought Icelandic cinema to the international scene which has since grown to its height, with films such as Noi the Albino, by Dagur Kári, seen as a descendent of the Icelandic film tradition.
