Gothenburg’s Film Festival is probably the best event of the year for movie buffs in the Nordic countries. It’s certainly a big event, with over a thousand screenings from 84 different countries and a multitude of seminars and concerts planned.

This year marks the festival’s 41st anniversary and there’s a special focus on Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, who would have been 100 years old in 2018. Working together with the local symphony orchestra, the film festival will use music, video and light to bring visitors closer to the director and his work.

A full program of all screenings and events is available on the festival’s official website. Ticket prices hadn’t been announced at the time of writing but you can expect to pay around 50 SEK for a festival pass, plus around 90 SEK for a single screening.
