RED CARPET

Our biggest films gets the Red Carpet-treatment. We roll out the red carpet and drinks and snacks are served in the lobby before the screening. Directors and actors are often invited to the screenings and take part in a Face2Face-conversation after the film. 

All our Red Carpet-screenings are open to the public.

 

BE IN TIME FOR THE SCREENING

Remember to arrive on time as you will not be allowed access to the screening after the film's start time. Red Carpet events and Friday Galas begin 30 minutes before the screening. 

 

SCHOOL CINEMA

The Stockholm Film Festival collaborates with School Cinema in order to spread the culture of film and cinema to younger generations. School Cinema is especially dedicated to students and kids from the city of Stockholm. 

The Stockholm Film Festival provides students, from the age of 15, the opportunity to see new films from all around the world for only 30 SEK per film.
