Live at Heart will be digital this year and just like the live music, the film festival will also take part in this platform during the festival days.

-It is challenging and interesting to have a film festival in these times with Corona when events like these are otherwise canceled, says Daniel Lundsten who is responsible for Live at Heart Film. Having the whole festival online instead of at Bio Roxy has made us think differently, but we see it as something positive that we can now experience and see Live at Heart from all over the world and not just here in Örebro.

Several short films from around the world applied to take part in this year’s short film competition during Live at Heart Film, which is the 7th consecutive year, and the selected films will be shown on Saturday 5 September, starting at 13.00 via Live at Hearts Facebook page and Youtube with a closing award ceremony.
