MUBI Keynote & Industry Screening

The Founder and CEO of art-house streaming service MUBI will guest the 30th Stockholm International Film Festival to hold a keynote address opening the festival's Industry Days.

Cakarel will discuss MUBI's unique business model, their expansion into production, and what they are looking for in Nordic cinema. The Keynote address is followed by an industry screening of Jesper Kurlandsky and Fredrik Wenzel’s highly anticipated film Charismatic Megafauna at Park.

MUBI is one of the world's first streaming platforms and the home to the world's largest community of film lovers with over 8 million registered users. Instead of offering thousands of films, MUBIproudly presents just 30. Every single one chosen by a human, not an algorithm. Cult classics to award-winning masterpieces, forgotten gems to festival-fresh independent releases, from the hard-to-find to the never-heard-of-that-before. Every day a new selection is added to the 30, and every day the oldest one is removed. All 30 films are available to watch or download for 30 days. MUBI is available globally. And there are no ads. Ever..


Charismatic Megafauna

Jesper Kurlandsky and Fredrik Wenzel’s »Charismatic Megafauna« is an ode to Mother Nature. It is an ode to cultural heritage in this modern world of over-consumerism we currently live in. It is an ode to life. This might sound like an exaggeration, but rather, it is the only way to do justice to this visual masterpiece.»Charismatic Megafauna« is nothing short of charismatic. This experimental documentary, by an award-winning duo of screenwriters and directors, is a film that transcends words. By doing so, this audiovisual experience challenges traditional storytelling. Kurlandsky and Wenzel takes us from the townships of Cape Town to the Xingu River in Brazil to the most densely populated country in the world and its capital, Beijing. And they do so without relying on the power of language. No words are needed as »Charismatic Megafauna« proves that a picture is worth a thousand of them.
