Sitges Film Festival

Finally! I have been visiting the amazing Sitges Film Festival regularly since 2002, but my schedule has not permitted to go there since 2005. My schedule does not really permit me to go there this year either - but screw that! During a wet night out, myself and Tomas Seidevall of Swedish DVD company Klubb Super 8 decided we simply had to go to Sitges...

Said and done. We woke up the next day with two business class tickets to Barcelona and no turning back.

I will only be there for 2 full days (Friday, October 3 and Saturday, October 4) but I hope to report both to this blog and to lovelockandload, the excellent guide to European cult movie goodness! In the meantime, here is a picture from Sitges 2005, with Quentin Tarantino, Eli Roth and company entering the main auditorium for the premiere of Hostel. In the background we can see a little of the gigantic movie poster display that cover the plaza during festival season!

SEE! "The Eden of Sweden!"

To celebrate that I have just handed in an article about Luigi Scattini's infamous mondo movie Sweden Heaven and Hell to a well-known magazine, let's take a look at some ballyhoo from the pressbook!

SEE: "The Love Cruise"! A training trip for turned-on teens!
SEE: "The Bachelorette Party"! A bride-to-be's last fling!
SEE: "Monlighting Nudes"! Meter-maids by day - models at night!
SEE: "The Swap Shop"! A trade-in deal for married couples only!
SEE: "The Polar Bare Club"! The world's most beautiful snow-girls!

And so much more - I have included some scans at extra high resolution so you can find out for yourself!
