We are releasing some titles from our upcoming program

There is only one month left until the program release for the tenth edition of the Umeå Film Festival. We’re celebrating by releasing some selected highlights from the upcoming program!

We are happy to present an exclusive preview of director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) newest film Poor Things. Earlier this year, the film won the Golden Lion and is rightfully one of the year’s big talking points ahead of the Oscars. Emma Stones plays the magnificent role of Bella Baxter – a young woman who is revived by an eccentric scientist and given the chance to face the world again as a child.

We will also show Gunilla G Bresky’s (Sara med allt sitt väsen, Son of the Sun) latest film We Are Still Here. A documentary about the Sami artist group Máze group, which consisted of seven young Sami artists who moved to the small village of Máze in Northern Norway in the late 70s with a dream to create together. Today they are all internationally established names on the art scene but still remember the time in Máze. Bresky will join the screening for a post-film conversation.

In addition to this, you can already buy tickets for the Ukrainian hit Luxembourg, Luxembourg – an intense, humorous sibling drama in which director Antonio Lukich managed to create a Tarantino feeling with the Ukrainian rap artists Amil and Ramil Nasirov in the lead roles.

In collaboration with the Bildmuseet, we are running two new current documentary films that have been chosen considering the thematic connection to their major exhibition Down to the North / Contemporary Art in the Arctic. The Czech film The Visitors is about the dream of making a new life above the Arctic Circle. The short film Images of you is a personal reflection of a colonial history, after the film Images of you, director Louise Hollerup talks with museum curator Anders Jansson, curator.

And we shouldn’t forget, our most luxurious event Dinner and a Movie where we Gotthard’s pub turns into a movie theater and their kitchen prepares an unforgettable 3-course dinner for the screening of Aki Kaurismäki’s newest film Falling Leaves.
