THE PALM BEACH POST…
Palm Beach’s Swedefest profiles best in amateur, low-budget filmmaking
Posted: 7:00 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015
By Leslie Gray Streeter – Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
Big budget movies make the impossible look real. Swedes are ultra, ultra low-budget movies that are impossibly — and lovingly — cheesy-looking.
Thus is the charm of Swedefest, the local film festival now in its fourth year of celebrating the art of turning blockbuster productions into homemade works that proudly display not only their creators’ complete lack of budget and, perhaps, actual filmmaking skill, but also a lot of love.
Swede Fest Palm Beach 4
7-9:30 p.m. Oct. 10, The Palm Beaches Theatre, 262 South Ocean Blvd., Manalapan, $12.65-$15; 561-282-4623 or SwedeFestPalmBeach.com.
Know that every film screened at Swede Fest qualifies as a horrible, no good, very bad remake of a hit Hollywood movie. So why recommend a so-called Swede, a term inspired by the 2008 Jack Black comedy “Be Kind, Rewind” to describe a three-minute, shoestring-budget sendup of a favorite film? Answer: the shorts are intentionally horrible, no good, very bad. They’re also funny, with previous swedes lampooning “The Dark Knight” as re-enacted with giant Lego figures; and the biblical epic “Noah,” shot entirely at a community swimming pool.
The blockbusters claimed for this year’s swede treatment (parental caution: all films are PG-13) include “Frozen,” “Shaun of the Dead,” “Aliens,” “Jurassic World,” “The Fast and the Furious” and “Star Wars.” We hope that last one offers zero references to Jar Jar.
