Movie InformationReleaseFebruary 12thGenreProgram
SynopsisMega-blockbusters, beloved classics, arthouse indies, even concert films have all been given the unique treatment known as “sweding” for the first-ever nationwide Sweded Film Festival for Creative Re-Creations, coming February 12 to virtual cinema and select real-world movie theaters.
“Sweded” versions of Die Hard, Air Force One, No Country for Old Men, The Lighthouse, The Wizard of Oz, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Stop Making Sense showcase the passion, humor, creativity and – as a result of the pandemic – incredible ingenuity of movie lovers, whose fast-and-cheap, homemade versions of these and other movies will be included in The Sweded Film Festival for Creative Re-Creations.
Virtual cinema releases help independently owned cinemas make up for the revenue lost during this historic time. In June, Mendelssohn and Row House created the Quarantine Cat Film Fest, whose virtual-cinema release raised nearly $50,000 for participating independent movie theaters.
“Sweded” films are inspired by Michel Gondry’s 2008 film Be Kind, Rewind, which sees two video-store workers create brief-but-bizarre remakes of real movies, unintentionally creating a must-see fad.
