LevelK at Gothenburg Film Festival 2020

Dear Friends,

We look forward to yet again attending the Gothenburg Film Festival, with a strong line-up.

This year we are proud to have three films selected for the festival, two of these will be up for a dragon award in the Nordic Competition. The first title is the festivals Opening Film PSYCHOSIS IN STOCKHOLM, a strong drama exploring the relationship between a sick mother and her teenage daughter. The second title is the hilarious film GAMES PEOPLE PLAY, about a group of 30-something friends regressing to their teenage selves while celebrating an unwanted surprise birthday party. Both titles will have their world premiere at the festival.

Our body-positivistic documentary FAT FRONT will also be shown in Gothenburg in the Focus section.

See the full program here.

At the Nordic Event part of the Festival, we will hold market screenings for PSYCHOSIS IN STOCKHOLM, GAMES PEOPLE PLAY and the edgy and hilarious title CALL MOM!

On the 30th of January, we will reveal and update with one more title for the market.
