It’s back! The #1 film festival that refuses to take itself seriously returns with swede fest™ palm beach 4, and this year it’s even “sweder”! Why? Because it’s going underground, the way it all started. Following three, sold-out years, swede fest™ palm beach 4 is happening thanks to the passion (read: possible insanity) of local fans who agreed to take it over from its original producer, Mainstreet at Midtown in Palm Beach Gardens.
The underground event showcases laughably bad, 3 minute remakes of Hollywood hits made by amateur filmmakers throughout Palm Beach County. This year’s showcase of bad films made by good people is presented by the Palm Beach International Film Festival and the Palm Beach Film Society on October 10 from 7 pm to 9 pm at The Palm Beaches Theatre located at 262 South Ocean Blvd. in Manalapan.

When & Where
swede fest palm beach 4
Based on the movie, “Be Kind, Rewind,” a “swede” is a no-budget, hilarious remake of a Hollywood film which spawned an underground sweding craze and resulted in the first swede fest™ in Fresno, Calif. Next came swede fest™ tampa bay, then swede fest™ palm beach in 2012. Picture “Twister” filmed using balled up paper towels; the pottery scene from “Ghost” reenacted by giant Lego figures; or “Noah” filmed inside a community pool with a cast of teenagers – these are only a few examples of the more than fifty films submitted last year. Perfect “short attention span theater,” each film is maxed out at 3 minutes, meaning that as “so-bad-it’s-good” as the film may be, another one is soon to appear. Audience votes on the best bad movie for the filmmaker's chance to win a fabulous prize!
