And just like that, another Swede Fest is behind us. You helped us pack The Tower Theatre with over 500 people to watch 26 awesome entries. 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, Geekwise Academy: without your help this event would not be what it is today, thank you so much. Our volunteers: without you, the event would not run so smoothly so thanks to Alexa, Chloe, Thong, Juan, and Luis. For people that have been asking, the awesome poster design was done by Kirk James. If you are interested in volunteering and helping Swede Fest become cooler, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get in touch. Thanks again and be sure to start thinking about YOUR entry for Swede Fest 15, coming in 2015.
As the date for Swede Fest 14 approaches, we still are trying to spread the good word about our little film festival. And this weekend brings us ZappCon, the first edition of the newest convention to come to Fresno which will be covering comics, toys, movies and gaming. Swede Fest will have a booth there and not only that, we will be hosting a panel on Saturday, October 18th at 3:30 p.m. so if you are attending and want to learn more about Swede fest or just have some questions for us, swing by! if you look up on top of this very post, you will see the first look at our poster art for Swede Fest 14, designed by Kirk James. Hope you guys make it out this weekend and if you don’t, I hope it’s because you’re working on your entry for Swede Fest 14. Remember: entries are due Nov. 17th so if you need a reminder of the rules, peep out this post.
