    Because of the 2020 COVID-19 situation the festival had to be a private festival. Meaning that no one could fly into Sweden from other countries to participate. Still, the people that ran the festival were very professional and constantly in touch with us regarding how things were being handled.

  • I was very honored and happy to receive the "Best Short Documentary" award at Boden Film Festival. Thanks for spreading the important message of my film - Big Social Nomad - about the threat facing the wild Indian elephants! I felt the organization and communication of the festival organizers were both professional and efficient. Though I was not able to attend I hope to be there next year!

  • No public screenings because of the corona-virus so it's difficult to give a fair review but I'm very happy with all my dealings with the organizers! I'm sure they had some tough decisions to make and I was happy the organizers decided to keep the competition, even if only before the jury members, and of course even more happy that my film won the first prize in the category Swedish feature documentary!
