Vacation and summer events!
Oh what a spring season we have had! We are super exited and proud over all film screenings that has been taking place around our network, as well as new collaborations made and new, exiting projects launched!
The Doc Lounge Head Office will now be closed for a few weeks, but we will be bang with a bang in August, and by then we will be able to reveal the film titles for the Doc Lounge Official Selection Autumn 2018. YAY!
And although the regular season is finished at most of our clubs, there are plenty of special screenings and exiting summer/early fall events being planned around our network in this very moment. See for yourself:
Doc Lounge Helsingborg will close the street art festival ”ARTSTREET” with a screening of Banksy -Exit through the giftshop on July 27.
Doc Lounge Umeå will do a pop up at Trästockfestivalen i Skellefteå, screening the film ”Hjärta Norsjö” by Lisa and Sophia Josephson with both directors visiting on July 21.
Doc Lounge Turku will host an exclusive open air screening of Silvana on August 21 in collaboration with Vinokino who host an annual HLBTIQA+ -filmfestival.
Doc Lounge Göteborg have entered a collaboration with ”Göteborgs Stadstriennal”, a platform for discussions and creation of the future of the city through talks, film screenings and workshops. Doc Lounge Göteborg will take part by hosting three film screenings which are all free and open for everyone. Doc Lounge Göteborg will also co-host the screening of The Feminist documentary (about feminist icon Gudrun Schyman) during Way Out West music festival.
On August 21st a big Doc Lounge Live event will be arranged at Doc Lounge Malmö, where director Hampus Linder and main character Gudrun Schyman will be there for a conversation after the film. This will be the first screening of the film in Malmö with Gudrun present, and the whole event will be live broadcasted to cinemas, libraries and culture houses joining in from all over the country.
Have a great summer!
