BEST GRASSROOTS-ISH EVENT

swede fest

Palm Beach County has made the cult-like film event its own after stealing the idea from the freaks in Fresno, Calif., who started it. The fest involves three-minute remakes of scenes from Hollywood blockbusters on laughably low budgets. The term originated from the 2008 movie Be Kind Rewind, in which two clerks at a video store accidentally erase all their VHS tapes and go about reshooting them, amateur-style, dubbing their disasters swedes.
