About this Event

Filmmakers can purchase a ticket now to register for the 2020 Sweded Film Festival for Creative Recreations.

How it works:

Register + Pay the $10 registration fee.

We'll email you a link for your submission and online resources.

Submit your film by November 22, and it could end up in the final feature film or you could win a cash prize!

Umm... What's a Sweded Film?

Sweded films are short, amaetur re-creations of classic films. Sweded films have nothing to do with Sweden the country, and everything to do with Michel Gondry’s Be Kind, Please Rewind — a 2008 film in which video store employees (Jack Black and Mos Def) ruin an entire store worth of videos and cover their mistake by hilariously remaking films themselves.

We turned the concept into a film festival and 2020 will be its fourth year running.

What are the Rules?

  • When filming, hold your phone sideways. Seriously guys! We can’t really use it otherwise.
  • Make sure your film is 3- 5 minutes
  • Keep it PG-13
  • You cannot play original soundtracks (it’s a copyright violation). HOWEVER, you can hum it, sing it, or play it on a kazoo.
  • Swede a well- known movie, but remember that we’ll only choose one of each title. So you’ll want something well-known, but somewhat original.
  • Tech specs are as follow:
  1. flat format – 1998 x1080 (note… not 1920×1080)
  2. frame rate – 24 fps or 30 fps (note… not 23.98 fps)
  3. audio can be up to 5.1 surround
  4. acceptable formats include mp4, mov, m4v only

Cash prizes??

Ya buddy! Registration fees go directly into the prize funds. We’re compiling an expert panel of judges to watch all the submitted films and choose which ones will be in the film and which ones will win first, second, and third prize… aka CASH.

When will the films be shown?

A feature-length film with the selected Swedes will premiere in early December 2020. You can watch it at home through virtual cinema or in select theaters.
