Fresno's 1st Swede Festival details

UPDATE: So the deadline (which was originally August 1st) has been pushed back a couple days to August 3rd, in order to give everyone an extra weekend to work on their stuff. Can't wait to see it!

Aight, so it's been a while since we put our swede out there for you all to see. We got some positive feedback from people wanting to do their own but as of yet, no one has stepped up (I'll attribute that to that fact that only my mom and 5 other people read my blog; and my mom can't even use a computer) Well, now here is a more officialer gauntlet being thrown down. We've teamed up with Corridor 2122 (located in beautiful downtown Fresno) to offer an official venue to hold Fresno's very first Swede Film Festival as part of the gallery's SPLASH Show on Saturday, August 9th at 2pm (BYO Popcorn—it's a gallery, not a theater). We're trying to make this very simple for everyone so once you have your swede ready, upload it to YouTube and send the link to or to us here at Please be sure to include your name and contact information in case your swede is chosen and we need to get a hold of you. There are some rules, though. We need to have all entries by August 1st (pressure makes all productions better) and they musn't be over 5 mins. in running time. Also, the films must not use any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws (so you can axe that planned swede of that one snuff film....maybe next year). So here's you opportunity, Fresno. Get off your ass, jump into that blazing sun and get cracking! If you need inspiration, go rent Be Kind Rewind, get some friends together and start a list of films to do. Embedded after this post is a little overview of what swedeing is all about coming from the horse's mouth: Michel Gondry. Enjoy and hope to see Fresno come out swinging on this one.

Filming of Iron Man the swede begins tomorrow. I got the tin foil, red and gold cellophane and hopefully a bald cap.

I was hoping someone would do Iron Man! Cellophane is a lifesaver! Can't wait to see it!
