The Stockholm French Film Festival, to be held for the fifth time this year from May
3 through June 6, will present 17 feature films and 13 short films to Swedish audiences.
For the fifth year running, the French Institute in Stockholm, the French Embassy, the Sture Cinema and Triangelfilm are hosting a French Film Festival in the Swedish capital. This event also benefits from support from FolketsBio, the Swedish Cinematheque and Unifrance.
