Slideluck Stockholm III was the first Slideluck show dedicated exclusively to video art. The venue, Bio Rio at Hornstulls Strand, in the south part of Stockholm city, was such a perfect place to host the Slideluck! The movie theater is one of Stockholm´s oldest and most loved venues.
The Slideluck concept was a great success. People were surprised and amazed that we could bring our own food to this beloved theater. And the complimentary beer was a hit! As everyone knows, Stockholm loves Brooklyn Brewery beer!
We had 170 excited guests, both video artists and creative minds from other disciplines. The screenings were very appreciated, and there were a ton of positive reviews for showcasing the moving image. One of the night´s biggest successes was that emerging artists discovered each other. We can’t wait to see what exciting new collaborations crop up from all that up and coming talent!
Sunday the 25th of August was one of the hottest days of the Swedish summer, which made the end of the night extra special. After the screenings at Bio Rio we strolled down the block to Rio´s other screening place, BarBro. The DJ started playing some tunes and people hung around on BarBro´s fantastic terrace, drinking beer and exchanging phone numbers on the last, hot night of a Stockholm summer.
