This Saturday 18/4 at 17.00 (Swedish time) some of my short films will be screened followed by a Q&A session with me at a live online event organised by Jonatan Petré Brixel through Twitch. Here is a direct link.
To be presented is my series of short films We also want to play. Seven mockumentary portraits of people with a dream, one stranger than the other, depicts what loneliness can do to us. All with a large portion of humor.
About the screening: Jonatan is a filmmaker who with colleagues also organise film festivals, there among the Berlin Revolution Film Festival, which this year had to be organised online due to the Corona pandemi. All sessions were streamed live and presented together with Q&As with the filmmakers. It was a success and now following up they have started streaming weekly events and I have now been given the honor to present some of my work.
All films are in Swedish with English subtitles. Lots of dialogue, or rather monologue, so put your glasses on.
The last couple of months I’ve had the honour to visit three new Filmstudios and three new cities; Falköping, Vänersborg and Sala. Screenings at some of the oldest cinemas in Sweden, and to a great audience.
While I am working on a new film project and a novel these screenings are a nice reminder that the work can bear fruit.
Just as it is easy to emit greenhouse gases there are many ways to take actions for the climate. Visit my page “Aim for the climate” to see how I tackle the issue in my professional life, because from now on I will make sure that my filmmaking reduces the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere!
The last month there has been three screenings of Not knowing who you are is a beautiful source of surprises. The one in Drömme outside Örnsköldsvik I could not attend to but I did visit the two filmstudios, one in Lysekil and one in Mölnlycke presenting the film to about 400 people and giving Q&A:s and telling our adventurous story about how we made this film possible. And I’ve been overwhelmed by all the smiles and cheerful comments, happy to see that the audience like the film.
Next up is a filmstudio in Norrtälje on the 15th of April.
This little festival had a very cozy vibe, homemade cookies and cakes were served together with fruit, coffee and tea. I am happy and proud to have been part of it this year and hope to do it again someday with my next film.
My little tour of screenings is over for this time, and all turned out very well. I am yet to hear from the screening at the festival in Scotland but here in Sweden I visited all and I am overwhelmed, to say the least, over how well the film was received. In Stockholm we filled the cinema with about 150 spectators and almost our entire team was their to greet the audience. And in Säffle, at their filmstudio, the audience rate all the movies anonymously afterwards and we scored a 5.2 on a scale from 1-6, and that being the highest score of the year, beating 16 other movies. Only the old classic movie “The Party” with Peter Sellers came close to us.
