Bragi Thor Hinriksson on edukas auhindadega pärjatud Islandi filmilavastaja. Ta on lavastanud kuus täispikka mängufilmi, millest neli on nautinud kodus Islandil tohutut kassaedu, mille kohalikud numbrid võistlevad filmidega nagu "Harry Potter", "Toy Story 3" ja "Avatar". Tema viimane mängufilm "The Falcons" ("Víti í Vestmannaeyjum", 2018) on rännanud ümber maailma nii festivaliringis kui laiemas levis.
