The festival will present a rich high quality short film program that also includes short films from the Swedish Film Institute’s “Voice” initiative – a new short film initiative to inspire social engagement through young and new voices behind and in front of the camera.

“Many of the short films have multiple viewing times so that as many people as possible will have the opportunity to see them. But on our final day, 8th of September, we will show all films and end with a prize-giving for best national and international short films, “says Daniel Lundsten and recommend  some short films to keep an eye on:

“We will have more filmmakers attending this year than ever before. We want to offer the same venue for the film that Live to Heart has always been for the music. In addition to public film screenings, there is a seminare program for filmmakers and the industry. We offer work in progress seminars and a film ptich competition that has 10,000 SKR in the pot. New for this year is the Would you buy this section, where a panel of distributors and festival organizers watch short films together with filmmakers and audiences. After each film, the film is discussed between the panel members and the filmmakers, about the films potential and possible distribution. I hope everyone who likes or working with film will have a very rewarding festival week, “concludes Daniel Lundsten.
