swede fest™ palm beach 4 Puts the Fun(ny) Back Into Filmmaking
October 10 at The Palm Beaches Theatre

Line-up promises another year of fantastically
“bad movies made by good people”


MANALAPAN, Fla. (September 30, 2015) The swedes are coming in, and organizers for this year’s swede fest™ palm beach 4 say audience members won’t be disappointed in the selection of “bad movies made by good people.” The hilarious, amateur film festival showcases 3 minute “remakes” of Hollywood hits on Saturday, October 10 at The Palm Beaches Theatre. Tickets are available in advance at Eventbrite.com for the “odd” price of $12.65, or $15 cash-only at the door that night. The evening begins with a mock red-carpet arrival at 6:30 pm featuring filmmakers dressed in their directorial finest enjoying a cash bar and photo op. The hit improv group Cheese & Crackers will emcee the screenings which start at 7:30 pm. An after party with food and drink specials takes place at Plaza del Mar’s Basil’s Bar Italian Cuisine offering reduced drink and food prices for swede fest™ palm beach 4 ticket stub holders.

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. The list of submitted film titles this year include:  Inside Out, Avengers/Thor, Into the Woods, Frozen, Pugnado, Cars, Sleeping Beauty, The Dark Knight, Goonies, Sound of Music, Shaun of the Dead, Harvey, Ferris Beuller's Day Off, Jurassic World, 127 “Clicks”, Aliens, Zoolander, Star Wars, and The Fast and the Furious.

The audience votes on the best/worst film made, which could win bragging rights for the future (or not) filmmaker, and a special grand prize of a fabulous, luxury stay at Crane’s Beach House in Delray Beach. Other prizes will be given for swede fest™ specialty awards (i.e. Best Use of Paper Towels, Most Blatant Exploitation of One’s Own Children, etc. Yes, these have been actual awards).  

All films are rated G to PG-13. Details on the Festival can be found at www.swedefestpalmbeach.com or by calling 561-543-8276 during business hours. The Palm Beaches Theatre is located at 262 South Ocean Boulevard. swede fest™ palm beach 4 is currently sponsored in-kind by the Palm Beach International Film Festival, Palm Beach Film Society and The Alchemy Group.
