Memorial Day is considered the unofficial start of summer, and summer — around here — means we’re obsessing about SWEDE FEST™ 2 PALM BEACH. Did you know you only have 42 days left to reserve your film and get your entry submitted? And that it’s a mere 60 days (2 months!) until we’re all sitting in those comfy seats at The Borland Center for Performing Arts, being heckled by Frank and Jesse (also known as The Jove Comedy Experience), and watching everyone’s 3-minute masterpieces?
