The Swedish Film Festival starts today in Luxembourg and many films from a new generation of Swedish filmmakers.

The best known name of the Swedish film industry is, of course Ingmar Bergman but the Swedish film festival will also present a whole new generation of filmmakers who take over an industry that has the reputation of being immersed in personal meditation and human condition.

To mark the Swedish presidency of the European Union, Luxembourg’s Cinematheque and the Swedish embassy in collaboration with the Swedish institute, the Ingmar Bergman foundation and the Swedish film institute have organised the Swedish film festival that is to screen both recent and old films. The festival kicks of today with the screening of Falkenberg Farewell by Jesper Granslandt and ends on the 17th of December with Bergman’s classic Fanny and Alexander.

The festival also includes films by Lukas Moodysson, one of the most powerful figures in contemporary Swedish cinema, Josef Fares a multi-faceted diretor and Maria Blom who focuses on dreams and the needs that drive human beings through wry humour, among others. An evening of “unseen Bergman” will offer the audience the opportunity to discover rare material from the famous filmmaker. All films will be screened in their original version with French and English subtitles.
