Indie film festivals have a rich history of showcasing amazing undiscovered talent, where Hollywood insiders troll for the next big thing, where A-list stars promote the small, labor-of-love projects they do between blockbusters. This is not the case with the annual swede fest™ palm beach. Instead, a “swede” is a 3-minute no-budget, laughably bad remake of a hit Hollywood film. The term comes from the 2008 comedy, “Be Kind Rewind,” which started an underground sweding craze and resulted in the very first swede fest™ in Fresno. Next came swede fest™ tampa bay, and swede fest™ palm beach ushers in its 6th year on March 24, 2018 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Kelsey Theater in Lake Park.

“sweders” will walk the “where the heck is the red carpet?” dressed in their best ‘Hollywood’ garb (whatever that means to them) before heading into the theater. The hit improv group Cheese & Crackers will emcee the night with quick breaks between groups of films to allow audience members to decide the best of the worst films. Following the “awards ceremony” everyone is invited next door to the Brewhouse Gallery for the after party.

COST:Tickets to the event are $12 in advance or $15 that evening and may be purchased at swedefestpalmbeach.com.
