The Lilla Filmfestivalen in Båstad begins in August each year. The festival was started by Bo Widerberg in 1996, and since its inception it has shown quality films from around the world.
Bio Scala is located in the middle of the village, just above Hotel Skansen, and shows films all year round.
If you want to experience some of the most famous locations in the history of the film, you can head to Hallands Väderö (Hallands Weather Island), where Ronja Rövardotter screamed for spring in a forest full of flowers. Or head over to Hov’s Hallar, the scene of the chess game in Ingmar Berhman’s classic film, The Seventh Seal. Or why not follow Johannes Brost’s footsteps in Båstad from Avalon, or take a bath at the pier in Torekov like Mickan in Solsidan?
