What is a sweded film? In 2008, the film "Be Kind Rewind" spawned a subculture of Internet videos in which regular people re-make Hollywood films with no money. These no-budget remakes are called “swedes.” Most of them are bad – as in “bad movies by good people,” our tagline.

As a byproduct of the underground sweding craze, two guys in Fresno invited a bunch of friends to make films starring themselves, then get together to screen them in another homage: To the indie film festival – but without the beautiful celebrities, coolness factor, or bidding wars.

swede fest™ palm beach is modeled after that original Swede Fest, and will be held in Lake Park's Kelsey Theater with a where's-the-red-carpet? after party at the Brewhouse Gallery.
