Stockholm Independent Film Festival 2023

26&27 May at Zita Folkets Bio 

Stockholm Independent Film Festival 2023 is returning to our beloved Zita Folkets Bio on 26 and 27 May for a two-day edition. We are excited to once again celebrate independent cinema in our favourite place with our favourite audience. Over two days we will screen 20 indie short and feature narratives and documentary films by filmmakers from all over the world. 

SIFF23 received over 2,000 submissions from more than 109 countries and by filmmakers from all walks of life. Using the most out of the independent cinema’s power, we have created a diverse and thought-provoking screening programme that is bound to take our audience on a journey around the globe.

Over two days and 4 screening slots in total, our film selection is aimed to entertain, educate and address modern-day issues. Part of our screening programme is the ‘Electric Malady’ by the Swedish director Marie Lidén, who was nominated in the 2023 BAFTA Awards in the Outstanding Debut category. In this captivating documentary, Lidén talks with William who suffers from electrosensitivity and lets him share his story. ‘Electric Malady’ is a modern folk-horror tale that confronts us with the reality of living with an illness that modern science can’t diagnose, but from which over 300,000 people in Sweden continue to suffer, Cineuropa.

In our Short Film category, you will find hidden gems such as ‘Tall Dark and Handsome’ by Sam Baron (UK), ‘Hämdervä’ by Eva Malmberg (SW) and ‘The Right Words’ by Adrian Moyse Dullin (FR). Looking forward to welcoming you to the 20th-century art nouveau Zita cinema in Stockholm’s city centre to celebrate independent cinema together.

SIFF23 has teamed up with Tony’s Chocolonely

We are super excited to announce that we have teamed up with Tony’s Chocolonely for the Stockholm Independent Film Festival 2023. Partnering with companies with a strong story and values that we share and fully support is of the highest significance. Therefore we couldn't be more thrilled that SIFF23 is getting tastier with one of our favourite chocolate brands whose mission is to inspire the industry as a whole to make 100% slave-free the norm in chocolate.

About Tony’s Chocolonely

Tony’s Chocolonely is a B-Corp, Fairtrade-certified company set up to change the chocolate going beyond certifications to make all chocolate worldwide 100% slave-free. It was founded in 2005 by Teun van de Keuken and 2 other journalists from the Dutch TV show ‘Keurings-dienst van Waarde’ after they discovered that the world’s largest chocolate manufacturers were buying cocoa from plantations that used illegal child labour and modern slavery.

Since then the company has been dedicating its efforts to raising awareness of and eliminating injustice in the chocolate industry.Tony’s Chocolonely is building direct long-term relationships with cocoa farmers in Ghana and Ivory Coast, paying them a higher price, and working together to solve the underlying cause of exploitation, namely poverty.

“We've been fighting for slave-free chocolate for the last 13 years. In that time we've been supported, encouraged, challenged and Tony's has been eaten by many people all around the world. We're aware of the challenges involved in trying to change the chocolate industry. But we are determined to keep going until we achieve our mission.”

Celebrate independent cinema and support 100% slave-free chocolate at SIFF23 on 26-27 May at the Zita Folkets Bio.
