The Stockholm International Film Festival also presents an opportunity to have in-depth discussions with directors and actors. During our Face2face events, the public has the possibility to directly interact with special guests.
It is during Red Carpet events that our greatest films are screened. Drinks and amuses-bouches are served in the lobby before the screening. Directors and actors are often invited to the screenings and take part in a Face2Face after the film.
Our Red Carpet screening tickets are available to the public.
Friday nights are synonymous with a gala atmosphere. We screen potential Oscar winner films starring some of cinema’s hottest names.
BE IN TIME FOR THE SCREENING
Remember to arrive on time as you will not be allowed to access the screening after the film starts. Red Carpet events and Friday Galas begin 30 minutes before the screening.
