Taste of Iceland to feature film, music and more

Taste of Iceland

Most of us are quite happily submerged in a sea of all things vaguely Irish during March, but if you find yourself needing to come up for air, Taste of Iceland is bringing some mid-month relief. The five-day cultural event will take place around Boston and Cambridge from March 12-16 and will serve to make us all feel bad that we don’t live in Iceland.

Cantabrigians can look forward to Reykjavik Calling at The Middle East (472-480 Mass. Ave.) on March 14, which will feature bands from Iceland as well as some local acts. Earlier that day, the Icelandic Film Festival will premier at Kendall Square Cinema (1 Kendall Square). The theater will screen ten Icelandic shorts—for free (seating is first come, first served). And finally, for you environmentalists out there, Taste of Iceland will host a city to city dialogue at the MIT Media Lab (75 Amherst St.) about efforts of cities on both sides of the Atlantic use energy efficiently.

Folks interested in keeping up with the Icelandic goings on can follow the hashtag #TasteofIceland on Twitter and Instagram.
