Stockholm scores audience high

Fest sells 125,000 tickets

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.”

Earlier this week, the festival and cell-phone operator Nokia were awarded the top prize at the Swedish Arts and Business Awards for their collaboration Mobile Movies at last year’s fest, where helmers such as Lasse Hallstrom made shorts on their cell phones.
