Doc Lounge at Way Out West!
Doc Lounges Annika Johnson is excited to visit the Way Out West festival in Gothenburg, Sweden, this weekend!
Way Out West started in 2007 and every year brings thousands and thousands of people for a three day music fiesta. A few years back the festival also added film screenings to the programme. The film screenings contains a broad mix of music films, classics, local, fiction and documentaries.
The great mix of films, with a focus on documentaries of cours, together with live music, DJ's and talks makes Way Out West a given event for Doc Lounge to meet up with friends and collegues and to collect inspiration from!
Among all the great films in the program, Sonica Sequence, directed by Doc Lounge friend Pether Lindgren and Lisa Nordström, held an excellent Swedish premiere yesterday. Coming up are a lot of other documentaries to look forward to, including I Am Not Your Negro, Dries, Ouga Girls and the Swedish premiere of Pornocracy: The New Sex Multinationals.
Not to forget, one of the festival film highlights is happening tonight, Friday - the premiere screening of the documentary about the hip hop artist and icon Silvana Imam! Doc Lounge will of course be there, not only to see the film but to also warm up for the coming Doc Lounge screening of the film - season opening with Silvana at Doc Lounge Malmö september 5!
See you at the festival!
