‘Portrait Of A Lady On Fire’

Göteborg Film Festival Film has teamed up with Swedish distributors to launch several new arthouse titles on its VOD platform Draken Film.

The films are: Portrait Of A Lady On Fire by Céline Sciamma; A White, White Day by Hlynur Pálmason; Give Me Liberty by Kirill Mikhanovsky; The Perfect Candidate by Haifaa Al Mansour and A Brother’s Love by Mona Chokri.

During the first six months, half of the revenues from new subscribers will go to independent Swedish arthouse cinemas, with each subscriber picking a specific cinema to support.

It is now the cinemas need our and everyones support!”
