A Film Festival Celebrating Independents!

We are hands-off curating a festival of movies recommended to us by independent cinemas, film clubs, producers from across nothern Europe.

We trust the passion and independent spirit that these friends of ours pour into their cinemas and sop we asked them for film tips and are going to simply screen what they send us!

The CANDYBREADKINO Festival will take place at Hypnos Theatre, in the centre of Malmös Kulturljudzon, a charming gem of a cinema, where buttery fresh popcorn aroma gives way to gusting whiffs of Big Bread, … while the sweet scent of fresh, warm, gooey candy, once so sticky icky in the room, is a distant memory for the oldtimers … but packaged, chewy, delightful and available for purchase at our cafe.

We are going to see some great films that you’re unlikely to see up on the big screen anyplace else than CANDYBREADKINO Festival – brought to us by friends who know great cinema from Prague, Berlin, Lille, Brussels, Ghent, Amsterdam and Oslo!
