Ruben Östlund to direct the audience at Göteborg Film Festival


The shared experience of the cinema is unmatched. But has contemporary scrolling on individual screens hurt audiences’ ability to participate in a collective screening? In This Is Cinema! two-time Palme d’Or winning director and the festival's Honorary President Ruben Östlund wants to get to the bottom of the behaviours of modern-day cinemagoers. At Göteborg Film Festival, he will challenge the lazed audience of contemporary cinema to create the world’s best cinema culture.

During an exclusive screening of Triangle of Sadness at the Göteborg Film Festival, director Ruben Östlund will break the fourth wall and step into the movie theatre; not only having directed the film showing on the screen but also directing the audience in the cinema.
