This Film Festival Is Organized On An Isolated Island Due To COVID-19

Because of COVID-19, only one fan will be chosen to enjoy all the films participating in the festival at the Isolated Cinema, located on an isolated island.

The Swedish Göteborg Film Festival is an annual event that has taken place since 1979. This year, it will be held in 7 days, from January 29 to February 8, 2021. This is an extremely popular film festival in Scandinavia, attracting up to 155,000 visitors each year.

However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, all films scheduled to be shown in theaters by the Swedish Göteborg Film Festival will be changed to online screening. Even so, this annual event still offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for film enthusiasts.

Accordingly, the organizers will allow only one fan to enjoy all the films participating in the festival at the Isolated Cinema, located on the Pater Noster island, a small island on the western coast of Sweden. The island is isolated from the human world. There is nothing on it except for rocks, winds, waves, and a single lighthouse.

The organizers said that the guests attending the festival would still be fully served with food, drinks, and resting place. However, they will have to say on the island for 7 days and will be completely isolated from their friends and relatives as they aren’t allowed to carry any personal items like phones, computers, and even books.

All you have to do is sit and watch 60 movies in a week. In addition to watching movies all day, the chose one will also have to record a vlog to talk about their experiences staying on the deserted island.

The festival’s art director told CNN that the idea arose after he watched more people watch movies to get away from boredom during the social distancing period.

On the website of the film festival, it is stated that anyone can sign up for this, but only one will be chosen. The announcement for the winner is on January 19. The movie show on the island will begin on January 30.
