As of 29 September, Sweden has lifted most of its COVID-19 restrictions, allowing full indoor gatherings again. At this handy time to be bouncing back from a dampened 2020 edition, marred by audience limitations and other restrictions, the Stockholm International Film Festival presented the programme for its 32nd edition this Tuesday. “Back to normal” was the key message, and not without a feeling of euphoria, festival director Git Scheynius confessed as she and programme coordinator Beatrice Karlsson unveiled the different sections and events that will play out between 10 and 21 November. Exactly 100 films from 48 nations will be screened for full, physical audiences while also being available as streaming options for the whole country to enjoy. “Times have been strange, but there have been some creative ideas to pick up and hang onto along the way,” Scheynius duly noted.

. A smaller number of guests will be in town, with a sizeable array checking in digitally, while the festival’s Industry Days will take place from 16-18 November, once again promising to get back to normal with a full slate of activities. “After a year of what-ifs, maybes and possiblys, we really couldn’t have had a better outcome,” Sheynius mused contentedly. “And there’s hand sanitiser available for each of the 250 screenings – just so you know,” Karlsson assured those watching.
