Last Wednesday saw the opening of the Swedish Film Festival in Bangkok, Thailand.

The festival was officially opened by the Ambassador to Sweden in Thailand, H.E. Mr. Staffan Herrstrom, the film Viskan Miracles was shown as the opening film.

“There is a broad variety of choices, and this also gives Thai movie lovers the opportunity to see Swedish movies,” said the Ambassador.

The seven films that screened in Thailand are Young Sophie Bell, We are the Best, Viskan Miracles, The Circle, Nice People, Underdog and Astrid.

While the festival ended today, hopefully next year more Swedish films will head to Thailand!
