Bright Future (Icelandic: Björt framtíð) is an Icelandic political party founded on 4 February 2012. Before the 2013 general election, it included two MPs, Guðmundur Steingrímsson (defected from the Progressive Party) and Róbert Marshall (defected from the Social Democratic Alliance). It then won 6 seats in the election.
Steingrímsson was elected as a candidate of the Progressive Party, but had left the party to sit as an independent. In 2012, he formed Bright Future with the Best Party, the new party sharing the same initials in Icelandic, "BF", as the Best Party. The party was formed to contest the Icelandic parliamentary elections in April 2013.
