Swede Fest 20 – Call for Entries!

Swede Fest 20 – Call for Entries!

With movie theaters closed, that means we have to improvise! This year the idea of creating your own entertainment only amplifies the true spirit of sweding. A “sweded” film, of course, has nothing to do with Sweden and everything to do with weird, homemade remakes of your favorite movies as seen in Michel Gondry’s 2008 film “Be Kind Rewind”.

Sweding is simple. Pick your favorite movie and recreate it with whatever you have laying around the house. Keep it under 4 minutes, send us your sweded film, and we’ll have a good old fashioned virtual screening on Facebook, YouTube, and CMAC 2 (Comcast 94, AT&T 99, Roku, Apple TV).

Your film must be submitted by Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Films should be no longer than four minutes and suitable for all ages. There’s no cost to submit or attend the virtual screening.
