Le Festival de Göteborg annonce son programme et se prépare à envoyer un spectateur sur une île
Tove de Zaida Bergroth

The 44th edition of the Göteborg Film Festival (29 January-8 February) will show 70 films from 39 countries. But while this year's focus is, unsurprisingly, on social distances, the event is set to push the idea even further by introducing “The Isolated Cinema” – an initiative that allows, among other things, one “solitary film enthusiast” to experience the festival's offering on the island of Pater Noster for a duration of seven days. The prospect of “no phone, no family, no friends” didn't discourage many applicants, though.

“We talked a lot about how this pandemic has affected us and our film experiences, and we wanted to experiment with that,” says artistic director Jonas Holmberg. “Take that to the extreme by giving one person access to our 60 premieres and nothing else. This island is far out in the sea; it's just a tiny rock. I am very curious to see how this person will respond to our film programme and how it will differ from what other people experience.”

, helmed by Zaida Bergroth and also chosen for the prestigious opening slot. Focusing on the life and loves of the creator of the Moomins, Tove Jansson, it's also Finland's Oscar submission.

“I certainly hope that Tove will be embraced – it will be very interesting to see how it goes,” Bergroth told Cineuropa. “Sweden played a hugely important role in Tove Jansson’s life: her mother was Swedish, and Tove studied and spent a lot of time there. I feel like both the Finns and the Swedes feel the same kind of pride when it comes to her; like she belonged to both of us. I’m happy to share her, and I’m hoping for the best for our film!”
