Glocal Film Festival
17 Sustainable Development Goals – 17 cities. Six out of 10 Swedes, mainly young people, are unaware of the Sustainable Development Goals. In this project, FilmCentrum seeks to help increase the knowledge of the SDGs by organizing a touring film festival that travels throughout Sweden and stops in 17 different cities. In each city, a film about one of the SDGs will be shown and it is particularly selected to meet the needs of that specific city. In connection to the screenings, in-depth discussions of the actual SDG will be carried out and complementary materials will be published on the website.
Through cooperation with the municipalities, local organizations and other profiles a local commitment on the specific goals is stimulated. Visitors are encouraged to take action through private initiatives to inform and educate people on the SDGs. These initiatives will be highlighted through a competition.
