Audience Choice Award winner to receive luxury stay
at Crane’s Beach House
Audiences looking for the chance to see local filmmakers take a bite out of Tinseltown can purchase their tickets now for the #1 film festival that refuses to take itself seriously. swede fest™ palm beach 4 is back and even “sweder” with the Palm Beach International Film Festival and the Palm Beach Film Society producing the underground hit event. The fest showcases laughably bad, 3-minute remakes of Hollywood hits made by amateur filmmakers throughout Palm Beach County at The Palm Beaches Theatre on October 10 from 7 pm to 9 pm. Seating is limited to the first 200 ticket buyers. Advance tickets are $13(ish) through Eventbrite.com or $15 at the door. The Palm Beaches Theatre is located at 262 South Ocean Blvd. in Manalapan.
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, Castaway, Aliens, Zoolander, Star Wars, The Fast and the Furious, and Mockingjay Part 1.
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.
All films must be rated PG-13. Also, there is only one swede per film title, so no one will be stuck watching three remakes of Mad Max (God help us all). Those looking to enter can email their chosen title to email@example.com. Films must be completed and sent by September 30. Updates on film titles are posted to the swede fest™ palm beach Facebook page, and rules and submission details are located on this website. The event is now completely volunteer run, and individuals and businesses looking to become a sponsor can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Elizabeth during working hours at 561-543-8276 to learn about the many ways they can gain shameless amounts of exposure to hundreds of all-ages residents. Swede fest™ palm beach 4 is currently sponsored in-kind by the Palm Beach International Film Festival, Palm Beach Film Society, and Alchemy Communications Group.
