New World View with Guest Country Sweden26. August 2012
Each year, the ZFF selects a new guest country for its New World View programme thus highlighting the current body of films from an emerging film producing region. This year’s New World View focuses on innovative film productions from Sweden. First, second and third works by directors cover the whole spectrum of topics found on the Swedish film landscape, and illuminates North European cinema from a number of angles.
The New World View programme opens on Saturday, September 22 with the romantic drama KYSS MIG (WITH EVERY HEARTBEAT, 2011) by Alexandra-Therese Keining. The director will attend the premiere screening at Arena SihlCity (18:45). KYSS MIG is her first cinema feature.
Sweden Opening Party
Following the premiere, a duo of the Swedish indie rock Friska Viljor will perform in concert at 22:00 in the Papiersaal. At 23:00 the DJ sounds of the Sweden Opening Party, held in collaboration with the Swedish Embassy and the Swedish Film Institute, will signal the start of the New World View programme.
