Ruben Östlund appointed new Honorary President of Göteborg Film Festival


 Ruben Östlund has been appointed as the new Honorary President of Göteborg Film Festival. Östlund will be an advisor for the festival and leave his artistic imprint on the festival programme – starting with the upcoming Göteborg Film Festival 2023.        

When Ruben Östlund's documentary short Let The Others Deal With Love had its world premiere at Göteborg Film Festival in 2001, a different, provocative and exciting artistry could be perceived. Since then, Östlund has achieved international success that – except for Ingmar Bergman – is unheard of in Swedish cinema. In January, over two decades after his first visit, Östlund will speak as the new Honorary President at the Opening Ceremony of Göteborg Film Festival.     

"With two Palme d'Or wins and many unforgettable cinematic moments, the Gothenburg-born and loyal visitor of the festival Ruben Östlund has the artistic integrity, the intellectual playfulness and the international luminescence that make him an excellent Honorary President for Göteborg Film Festival. He is a critical sociologist, a passionate visual creator and a charming provocateur. It will be both joyful and challenging for us to search for the future of the festival together", said Jonas Holmberg, Artistic Director at Göteborg Film Festival.   

"After meeting with the festival, it was both an easy and a joyful choice to accept this heavy title. We share the vision of a more vital cinema culture, free from nostalgic throwbacks. We will have to do this work in many different areas, but I can reveal that the first one for us to lecture is the cinema audience. They must learn the difference between scrolling for dopamine on individual screens and to take part of a show”, said Ruben Östlund.  

The board of Göteborg Film Festival appoints the Honorary President for five years, at which point it will be renewed or concluded. The commitment of the Honorary President includes acting as an advisor for the management of the festival and annually leaving an artistic imprint on the festival programme.    

Previous Honorary Presidents’ at Göteborg Film Festival:    

Ingmar Bergman (1994-2007)    

Roy Andersson (2009-2018)
