Stockholm Film Festival Junior invites all of Sweden’s school classes to share the joy of films. The festival has been a hybrid film festival since 2021 through the digital platform Festival on Demand, and this year the audience is also welcomed back to selected cinemas in the Stockholm area. There are 30 quality films from 29 different countries gathered under the theme “Mom” and already now you can book the films you want to see!
The festival will be held during six wonderful festival days March 28 to April 2. Last year, the festival reached more than 50,000 young people from all over Sweden. Now the festival hopes to reach even more people, and once again invites children and young people from north to south to watch films from all corners of the world – completely free.
It is with great anticipation and excitement that the Stockholm Film Festival Junior reopens for all of Sweden’s school classes and members to see international quality film for 1 week this spring, completely free of charge. For the fourth year in a row, BRIO is the main partner for the festival and continues to support children’s culture in a creative way, says Beatrice Karlsson, Program Manager Stockholm Film Festival Junior.
This year’s opening film is the animated film “Where is Anne Frank”, a colorful film adaptation of the well-known and moving story of Anne Frank and her diary directed by award-winning Ari Folman. “Where is Anne Frank” will be shown physically during the Stockholm Film Festival Junior’s inauguration, Monday 28 March at Cinema Grand in central Stockholm.
Now we are counting down the days to this year’s festival and the highlight of spring. Check out this year’s program and book films on the Stockholm Film Festival’s website.
