Call for entries for Swede Fest 16, festival set for December 10

Swede Fest 16 is coming on Saturday, December 10 and will be returning to The Tower Theatre so you know what that means: it’s time for the gears in your head to start turning to generate some swede-tastically awesome ideas! Grab your friends and family, browse your DVD or Netflix library, start collecting cardboard boxes from your nearest dumpster, because before you know it Swede Fest 16 will be upon us!

The deadline for entries is Sunday, December 4 at 11:59 p.m but there’s no time like the present to start your creative process. Don’t be shy about turning in your entry early!  Time limit is still 4 minutes and your entry must be suitable for all ages. It’s free to submit and everyone of all ages is encouraged to swede their favorite films. Although it’s not required, we like to hear from people who are planning to submit so we can start planning out the program. So if you are going to create one, drop us an email at info@swedefest.com to give us a heads up!

If you need some inspiration, feel free to visit our library of past entries right here and the ideas will be flowing in no time! If you have any questions, please email us at info@swedefest.com.

Happy sweding!

Swede Fest 15 wrap-up

And just like that, another Swede Fest is behind us. You helped us pack The Tower Theatre with almost 500 people to watch 27 awesome sweded films. If you didn’t make or just want to relive the magic, you can check out all the entries right here.

We’d like to thank everyone who submitted because without you, this festival would simply not exist!

We’d also like to thank our sponsors that make Swede Fest possible. Fresno Filmworks, The Tower Theatre, Haro Entertainment: thank you so much.

Our volunteers: without you, the event would not run so smoothly so thanks to Chelsea, Matt, Kyle, Thong, and Kevin. For people that have been asking, the awesome poster design was done by Alexa Westerfield. If you are interested in volunteering and helping Swede Fest become cooler, please drop us an email at info@swedefest.com and we’ll get in touch.

Thanks again and be sure to start thinking about YOUR entry for Swede Fest 16, coming in 2016.
