Dream Baby Dream

Alexandra Dahlström and Zoë Que  have both posted a video of Drömfabriken (Dream Baby Dream) on their Vimeo accounts. It seems that this is the work in progress piece they shared at the Stockholm Film Festival this year and hopefully we will get to see the entire film sometime.

Two best friends, Alex (Hedda Stiernstedt) and Valentina (Alexandra Dahlström), dream about conquering the world together. But when they go to Los Angeles and audition for the same part, they start competing about the big breakthrough. Eventually Alex has to ask herself what she’s willing to do to achieve success?

Love Revisited

Today is a wonderful day! Dunja Vujovic has shared her short film Love Revisited on Vimeo in full length and with English subtitles! I very much enjoyed it and since I don’t want to spoil anything I’m going to post the video here so you can watch and enjoy.

Pre-Festival Goodies

My apologies for the lack of updates. My real life has been crazy busy with a new house, a new job and social obligations galore which is unusual for me. It’s that time of the year again and the Stockholm International Film Festival is approaching! This year it will take place from November 8th to November 19th and some goodies have already started to pop up online.

Firstly, Alexandra Dahlström will be presenting a work in progress called Drömfabriken on November 15th with Amna Maksumic.

Secondly, a trailer for Elin Övergaard’s short film Förebilder (Picture World) has been released. Alexandra appears in it but does not have any lines.

 

Way Out West!

The Way Out West festival took place in Gothenburg from August 10th – 12th this summer. Alexandra Dahlström attended the event and was part of the line-up this year. There was a screening of the newly digitized version of Fucking Åmål as well as many parties. See the gallery of photos below as well as an interview with Alexandra from Göteborgs-Posten.

Fucking Åmål Digital Screening

With the digital revival of Fucking Åmål recently, the updated version of the film was screened at Bio Victor, Filmhuset in Stockholm yesterday night. The event was sold out and photos have started to appear online.

Following the film there was a discussion with Alexandra Dahlström, Rebecka Liljeberg and film producer Lars Jönsson. They discussed the film, the Guldbagges and the film’s significance today.

One video has popped up on Instagram of Alexandra & Rebecka signing autographs for fans.

If you’re interested in a few extra photos check them all out in the photo gallery. A lot of them were similar so I didn’t post them all here.

Throwback Thursday

Alexandra recently posted this behind the scenes gem from Fucking Åmål on her Instagram. Love it!

Förebilder

Elin Övergaard has a new short film called Förebilder (Picture World) which premiered during the Göteborg Film Festival this year. It’s a 13-minute short film in Swedish and is about a modelling agent named Evan who tries to do a good deed during a fashion shoot. Alexandra Dahlström is in the film though I can’t say what her role is. In the photo posted on the Göteborg Film Festival website – as well as Elin’s Tumblr – I can spot Alexandra on the left with the mug in her hand and her head turned away. Hopefully this as well as some of Elin’s other short films will be available online soon!

Watch Bussresan

Back in March I had written about Alexandra’s involvement in a short film called Bussresan. It has since been released and is available to view online until May 1st. It is a 14-minute animated short directed by Sarah Gampel. Alexandra Dahlström is the voice of the main character Sarah. It’s mostly in English with some Swedish and French subtitles throughout.
