This Saturday’s big cultural event in Göteborg was the première of Aeschylus’ The Orestia at the theatre Folkteatern (=The People’s Theatre). The play was directed by renowned dramatist Lars Norén, who is also the new artistic director of Folkteatern (situated in the same building as the GIFF office and our main theatre Draken).
I enjoyed the play, but the highlight of the evening was meeting artist Peter Johansson. He created the GIFF poster in 2003, see it and all the other festival posters here.
Peter lives in Malmö but visits our festival every year. This year he saw 47 films. 47!
To hear things like that really makes me inspired to make Peter’s (and everybody else’s) next GIFF experience the best possible!
