Thanks for this year!

Tempo Documentary Festival is over for this time and we want to thank everyone who have contributed to this magical festival week! After seven days with over 120 program items, we feel proud, happy and enriched after all the meetings and impressions. Thank you for being a part of this and we have already started planning for next year!

The week began with a grand opening at Park with the Swedish premiere of Calendar Girls by Maria Loohufvud and Love Martinsen, with Patty Hinshaw Dershem as guest of honor. This was followed by six intense days filled with film, radio, photography, performing arts, seminars and masterclasses. The festival was for the first time a real hybrid with both physical and digital film screenings and also two digital masterclasses in addition to the physical industry program.

The festival had several packed screenings, including the international winning film Courage. Director Aliaksei Paluyan, who was present in Stockholm, appeared during the week both on TV and in the print press and was heard on the radio. “Talks in progress” arranged by OFF, the Independent Filmmakers’ Association, raised the Ukrainian issue and it was once again clear what significance Tempo is as a gathering place for the Swedish industry.

Several of the documentaries that participated in the Tempo Documentary Award competition will soon have their regular cinema premiere. So if you missed, for example, Calendar Girls, Nelly & Nadine, The Scars of Ali Boulala, Love & Divorce or GABI, between the years 8 and 13, new chances will come within the next few weeks. And if the desire for even more documentary film is strong – then keep an eye on our website and facebook! We will be back soon with new exciting programs and special screenings. During the autumn, we will continue with Tiny Tempo, the documentary festival for children and young people. And the twenty-fourth time valid for Tempo Documentary Festival will be March 6-12, 2023.
