Rainy days call for a movie night!



The 38th annual Göteborg Film Festival(GIFF) has once again descended upon the city of Goteborg. This year, in addition to continuing to promote Nordic film, the festival will offer a number of Japanese selections including the Studio Ghibli documentary “The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness” in the ‘Japan in Focus’ category.

I was pretty impressed with the lineup of the festival last year (which was my first year attending the film festival). So far, it looks like GIFF continues to show a great selection of international and Nordic films.

Visitors to GIFF can take advantage of seeing movies in some beautiful venues around the city.


Draken theatre is one of the main theatres for the festival!

The Göteborg Film Festival offers more than just movies, with workshops, music and more. It’s nice to have a festival in town in the winter. It brings some life into the sleepy town and it’s just perfect to duck into a movie on a chilly day.
