LevelK at Gothenburg FF & Nordic Event 2021

We look forward to yet again "attending" the Gothenburg Film Festival and the Nordic Event Market.

This year we are proud to have two films in competition at Gothenburg FF and a very interesting project as part of the works in progress session at the Nordic Event Market.

The first title is the festivals opening film TOVE directed by Zaida Bergroth (Miami, Maria’s Paradise). This Finnish drama centres on the artistic struggles and unconventional personal life of Tove Jansson who found worldwide success from an unexpected side project and ended up creation the beloved world of the Moomins. The film was part of the TIFF Industry Selects programme 2020 and is Finland’s official Academy Award entry. TOVE will be part of the Nordic Competition.

Our second selected title is the provoking Icelandic documentary A SONG CALLED HATE about the performance art group Hatari, who made headlines at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, when they used the competition to make a political statement.  The film is directed by first time director Anna Hildur and has a strong executive producing team onboard in Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, the directors behind the critically acclaimed Nick Cave starring documentary (20,000 Days on Earth), which won two awards at Sundance and was BAFTA nominated. A SONG CALLED HATE will be part of The Nordic Documentary Competition.

At the Nordic Event Market our intriguing and interesting Swedish drama THE SCHOOLMASTER GAMES will be presented in the works in progress session. THE SCHOOLMASTER GAMES focuses on the St Sebastian Academy, an all gay male school, which pulsates of eroticism and power games that the strict Schoolmaster orchestrates. In his secret relationship with pupil Charles, he’s developed the Schoolmaster Games, an extended play where Charles makes mischief and the Schoolmaster punishes. Script is available upon request.
