The Goteborg Film Festival is adding TV drama to its usual public film programme for its 2016 edition.
Goteborg (Jan 29-Feb 8) is already well known as a meeting place for the TV industry, because of its industry TV Drama Vision two-day programme.

30 Degrees in February (30 grader i februari), 2012
Based on stories by Anders Weidemann.
A disparate group of Swedes move to Thailand in search of a new life.
Problems swept under the carpet have a tendency of biting back. When the carpet in question is a sun-soaked Thai beach, this can be pretty stark. The difficulty in trying to run away from one’s troubles in order to find a better life is the central premise of this Swedish drama.
Released on the Nordic Noir sub-label of Arrow Films, the show follows a diverse group of troubled Swedes who all choose to up sticks and relocate to Thailand. Looking to escape illness, money worries and loneliness, the ex-pats all attempt to leave their problems in Sweden. However, predictably enough, their various traumas don’t disappear in the sun. »
