STOCKHOLM — The Stockholm Film Festival, which wrapped Saturday, set a new audience record this year. There were 125,000 tickets sold, which is an increase of 7% compared with last year.

A total of 170 features were screened, and 100 perfs were sold out.

The most popular films were the Coen brothers’ “No Country for Old Men,” Park Chan-Wook “I’m a Cyborg, but That’s OK,” Josef Fares’ “Leo,” Wes Anderson’s “The Darjeeling Limited” and David Cronenberg’s “Eastern Promises.”
