In this year’s special focus on transmedia, we’ll devote an intensive 48-hour round to develop two documentary film projects. We have invited people from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities: programming, game development, process design, marketing, directing, crowdfunding etc., in order to bring out new ideas from various point of views. The two projects will be developed in different directions on March 3-4 and the results will be exhibited in the transmedia lounge during the festival.

They result will be presented on Sunday, March 9 at 13:00.


Two directors have fearlessly agreed to let us use their films in progress as a starting point for this adventure.

Angela Bravo,  Imaginary Country

Imaginery Country is a character driven film, exploring themes of identity, political borders and exile. The story starts in Sweden during the 1980s and takes us back to Chile 1973, it is a hybrid that uses a mix of animation, archive footage and documentary storytelling.

David Herdies and Georg Götmark, Without title


Realized in collaboration with Hyper Island and Filmregion Stockholm-Mälardalen. Carefully guided by Protothon.



Tempo tipsar! Emilie Löfgren, redaktör för programtidningen.

I want to tell about my favorite films The Artist and the Thief; an exciting film about how a theft becomes the beginning of an unlikely friendship where they are both forced to face demons from the past. Our Time Machine is a great movie about creative anxiety, a father suffering from dementia who's memories  become increasingly blurred and the director's longing for his own family.
