4 Swedish films and 4 directors; at 56th Thessaloniki International Film Festival

The Thessaloniki International Film Festival is the leading film festival of South Eastern Europe, the presentation platform for the year's Greek productions, and the primary and oldest festival in the Balkans for the creations of emerging film makers from all over the world.

From the 1960 that was founded it became international in 1992, including a Competition
Section for feature length films by emerging directors presenting their first or second film.

Swedish film has had a presence at the festival many times in the past and this year we are happy to announce that four Swedish films will be screened, one European premiere and part of international competition and one being part of the Youth Screen section.

The screenings of the Swedish films are supported by the Swedish Embassy.
