WHAT WE ARE DOING
The name KYK (pronounced ‘cheek’) derives from the Faroese word kykmyndir (pron. ‘cheek miendr’), meaning motion pictures, and the verb ‘kyka’; to light a fire.
We are an independent production company based on the Faroe Islands, where we produce impactful storytelling for a global audience. We produce films, drama series and documentaries.
The company was established in 2017 by producer Jón Hammer, who first cut his teeth at Lars von Trier’s Zentropa, before moving on to independent powerhouse Adomeit Film Denmark. Jón is a member of European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE).
