Rebel Alliance: Need for Swede 02

Need for swede 2


South Africa’s only home-made movie event, Need For Swede, is back after a super successful debut last month.


This month’s event takes place at The Bioscope on Thursday the 27th of September and will be the second in a trilogy of events designed to celebrate hand-crafted movie remakes in the spirit of Michel Gondry’s “Be Kind Rewind”.


This is how you can be involved:


Create your own DIY remake – Use what you have, get your friends involved, craft your own piece of sweded magic and see it on the big screen of Johannesburg’s only independent cinema! It’s fun! It’s easy! It doesn’t even need to be good!


For the second Need For Swede all 4 of the first South African swedes, created for last month’s event, will be screened:


by Tess, Henco & Mark


by PJ Kotze and his magical Open Window students


by Lovechild


by Cool your Jets


PLUS all the new swedes created for NFS2. PLUS bonus swedes from our American friends at Swede Fest!


(side note, all Need For Swede films will be sent over to Swede Fest to be screened at their events across the US. WOW!)
