Sweden takes films on the road

Fest takes arthouse fare to rural areas

Sweden’s film distributors and exhibs are organizing a touring film festival to give rural auds a chance to see arthouse movies that wouldn’t normally be released outside the larger cities.

The tour will start in April, taking eight films to 12 rural areas before their regularly skedded local preems.

The films are German romantic drama “Effi Briest,” Isabelle Huppert starrer “White Material,” French drama “Partir,” omnibus film “New York, I Love You,” Jared Leto starrer “Mr. Nobody,” Ben Stiller comedy “Greenberg,” Tilda Swinton starrer “I Am Love” and Norwegian comedy “A Somewhat Gentle Man,” starring Stellan Skarsgard.

” It’s very exciting to offer the audience exclusive pre-screenings of forthcoming features, even before the audiences in the big cities see them. Our hope is that this will become an annual event,” said Jakob Abrahamsson, head of distribution at NonStop Entertainment, one of the founders of the event, which is sponsored by the Swedish Film Institute.
