HIGH COAST

INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

TRUE INDEPENDENT FILM!





High Coast Film Festival

 

Once per year Lunde House of the People becomes a Cinema once more, with one simple purpose – to screen & promote true independent films in the High Coast! 

 

So - true indie film, what's that?

You could say that we promote Unconventional and Experimental Genre, Auteur and Art House films. Most films are low&no-budget productions even if there also are a few bigger ones as well.

 

But the main thing is the Independent Banner and that it's held high, regardless of budget, style, form, origin etc. The core in our programming is the free voice, the will to express and experiment through the medium film.

 

We especially focus on internationality, seeking films and film makers from all over the world and working hard on making it possible for them to visit the festival. The actual meeting of film makers, audience and enthusiasts is such an important factor for not only those who participate and visit but in all honesty the world. Through stories actually coming from their origins and the makers visiting from all parts of the world we really do get that elusive cultural exchange, and we get it on the best level possible: peer-to-peer, eye to eye.

 

So far we have screened films from more than 50 different countries and had directors visiting the festival from Iran, USA, France, Belgium, Holland, Finland and of course Sweden, to name a few.

 

We work to provide a comfortable enviroment where film makers, organisations, enthusiasts and audience can meet and spend time together during a weekend packed with quality independent films.

 

An important factor is therefore that we pay for accomodation for all invited film makers as well as organizations to support their travel to the worlds most beautiful place, the Swedish High Coast.
