We’re very excited about being part of this grassroots film festival, this because we know it would probably not have existed if it hadn’t been for an experiment we did in collaboration with film director Hanna Sköld in 2009. What started as a small indie-film distribution experiment has evolved into several Creative Commons film festivals all over the world.
