Mission / description Västerås Filmfestival was founded in 2015 and we showed about 230 films. Now in its fifth year. The mission of the Festival is to promote and increase interest in quality films, and production on regional, national and international levels.

There will be films from Sweden and around the world. We are going to have a competition open for students in secondary schools for 1 minute long films on a certain theme.

Last year's winners were of high quality and from around the world. There were also Swedish and regional films among the winning contributions.

In addition to film screenings we will also organise workshops, debates, interviews and other events, and on Oct 1st we have a grand gala event, with dinner, award ceremony, mingle and party.
