    • 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
    • Harkins Shea 14 Theatre, 7354 East Shea Boulevard, Scottsdale, AZ, 85260

    The Swedish comedy "Amateurs" will screen at Scottsdale International Film Festival. It will be in Swedish with english subtitles.

    Welcome to Lafors, a small (fictitious) Swedish community in desperate need of a fresh start. Hope rises when the German low-cost superstore, Superbilly, considers a new Lafors location. 

    Winning the bid would create 500 new jobs and change everything. Musse, a local government official, receives the honor of making the commercial that will sell Lafors. But teenagers Aida and Dana pick up the fight and turn their mobiles and selfie-sticks towards everyone that isn't allowed to take part in the commercial. The battle of who has the right to tell the story of Lafors begins!

    • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
    • Harkins Shea 14 Theatre, 7354 East Shea Boulevard, Scottsdale, AZ, 85260

    The Swedish biopic "Becoming Astrid" will screen at Scottsdale International Film Festival. It will be in Swedish with english subtitles.

    The early life of Astrid Lindgren, the internationally beloved creator of Pippi Longstocking, is recounted in this period drama. 

    By the tender age of 18, Astrid’s talent as a writer had become apparent, earning her an internship at the local newspaper in Vimmerby, Sweden, working for charismatic editor Reinhold Blomberg, who shared her belief in freedom, modernity and the future. Astrid’s gifts are promoted and her writing flourishes, but she also begins an intimate relationship with Blomberg. When Astrid becomes pregnant, Blomberg can’t marry her. He’s already the father of seven and in the middle of a messy divorce. 

    Unwilling to bring shame on her devoutly religious parents, Astrid leaves her life behind in order to care for herself and her son on her own. This decision transforms her into one of the most inspiring women of our age, a young woman who, despite the expectations of her time, breaks free from society's norms to follow her heart.

    SACC Arizona and SWEA Professional invites you to an informal Happy Hour Speaker event to make new contacts and gain new insights.

    This time it is our distinct pleasure to have Dr. Bruce E. Rittmann from ASU talking about his work on environmental biotechnology. 

    "I was awarded the 2018 Stockholm Water Prize for my work in Environmental Biotechnology. Environmental Biotechnology involves managing microorganisms so that they provide sustainability services to society. Those services include cleaning up pollution, generating renewable resources, and improving human health," says Dr Rittmann who was awarded the prize together with Mark van Loosdrecht.

    His talk will provide an introduction to Environmental Biotechnology and highlights of the events at the Stockholm Water Prize, which was awarded on August 29 this year by Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. 

    Dr Bruce Rittmann and Princess Victoria of Sweden

    Dr. Bruce Rittmann is the Director of the Biodesign Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology at Arizona State University. Besides the Stockholm Water Prize, Dr. Rittmann has been recognized as a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. Dr. Rittmann has 16 awarded patents, has published nearly 700 peer-review papers, and is a co-author of the internationally used textbook: Environmental Biotechnology: Principles and Applications (McGraw-Hill Book Co.)

    • FilmBar Phoenix, 815 N. 2nd St. Phoenix, AZ 85004

    Through the eyes of ten-year-old Alexander, we witness the delights and conflicts of the Ekdahl family, a sprawling bourgeois clan in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Sweden. 

    Ingmar Bergman intended Fanny and Alexander as his swan song, and it is the legendary director’s warmest and most autobiographical film, a four-time Academy Award–winning triumph that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with immense joy and sensuality.

    Swedish cookies and glögg will be on hand among other festivities!

    This is a part of SACC Arizona's #Bergman100 commemoration of the Swedish film creator's birth.

    Presented in collaboration with FilmBar Phoenix, Swea Arizona and the Consulate of Sweden in Arizona.
