Swede Fest 18 wrap-up

And just like that, another Swede Fest is behind us. You helped us pack The Tower Theatre with almost 400 people to watch 28 awesome sweded films. If you couldn’t make it 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. / FresYes Realty, CMAC, 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 Matt, Juan, Kyle, Bee, Thong, Natalie and Valerie. If you are interested in volunteering and helping Swede Fest become cooler, please drop us an email at and we’ll get in touch.

Thanks again and be sure to start thinking about YOUR entry for Swede Fest 19, coming in winter 2019.…
