Irish Swede

6th February 2008

The Irish Film Board has announced a fun competition that takes its inspiration from the new Michel Gondry comedy Be Kind Rewind.

Using an Irish or Irish-themed film as inspiration, the competition involves making a short ’sweded’ movie that’s no more than two minutes long. A ’sweded’ movie is a re-imagining of a film, trailer or scene made using anything that is to hand.

The prizes which are sponsored by the IFB, Filmbase, Darklight Festival and Channel 6 include two tickets to an Irish movie premiere, a walk-on-part in an Irish Production, a year’s free membership to Filmbase and a screening of the winning short on Channel 6 and at the Darklight Festival in June.
