Swedish film festival to screen on remote island for audience of one

STOCKHOLM — Scandinavia’s biggest film festival is going ahead this year despite the coronavirus pandemic, but will be hosted on an isolated island and admit only one attendee — a healthcare worker, selected from 12,000 applicants.

Swedish nurse and film fan Lisa Enroth was chosen to be the 2021 Gothenburg Film Festival’s castaway who will spend a week on the remote island of Pater Noster watching film after film.

“In healthcare I seem to have spent ages listening, testing, and consoling. I feel like I’m drained of energy,” Ms. Enroth said.

Pater Noster, on the boundary of a dense archipelago off Sweden’s west coast, is known for its lighthouse.

“The wind, the sea, the possibility of being part of a totally different kind of reality for a week — all this is really attractive,” said Ms. Enroth, who will keep a daily video diary that will appear on the festival’s website.

The festival’s CEO Mirja Wester said: “It feels particularly right to be able to give this unique experience to one of the many heroes of the healthcare system who are all working so hard against COVID-19.” — Reuters
