Weekend film experience
Stockholm International Film Festival has created two schedules, one for feature film lovers and one for those who prefer documentaries. During the weekend you are invited to an extraordinary film experience. Our Red Carpet events are already sold out but there is so much more to take part in!
Begin your Saturday at 11.30am at Capitol with The World To Come, a female settler-western that was also this year’s opening film. Make your way to Park at 2pm for February and dream of a life in the Bulgarian countryside. Stay in the area, at 7pm there’s a screening of Spring Blossom at Park where you get to experience a film by one of the youngest directors in the world who also wrote the script and plays the lead. End the day with Danish Shorta at 9pm at Zita and take part in the riot that breaks out around two police officers.
On Sunday you start at 11.30am at Capitol with Servants that serve conspiracies and contrasts. After your lunch you make your way to Filmhuset for the visually impressive Memory House at 2.30pm. Stick around Karlaplan and catch the family drama My Little Sister with legend Nina Hoss at 5pm. At 7.30, also at Filmhuset, The Wasteland is playing for those who want to see proper auteur cinema. Finish this full on weekend at Zita at 9pm with Surge which has strong influences from Uncut Gems by the Safdie Brothers.
If documentaries are more up your alley we recommend that you start your Saturday at 11.30am at Park where Joaquin Phoenix’s passion project Gunda is playing. At 2.30pm you have the opportunity to watch Ai Weiwei’s Vivos about the 43 students that disappeared during their journey through Iguala, Guerrero in Mexico. At 4pm there’s a screening of 76 Days at Zita which gives you the chance to explore the primary outbreak of the corona virus and the 76 days of lockdown that followed.
On Sunday you start your day at 10.30am at Park with the conspiracy around the death of Kim Jong-nam in Assassins. Explore the streets of Istanbul through the eyes of a stray dog in Stray ar 4pm at Zita. Finally you can get a bit of a change from your documentary weekend with psychological thriller The Intruder at Skandia at 9pm.
