Lighthouse Podcast

Pater Noster Lighthouse off the west coast of Sweden is operated as a small hotel. The lighthouse hotel has formed a partnership with the Göteborg (or Gothenberg) Film Festival.  Because of COVID restrictions, this year’s 11-day festival was held digitally, with about 70 films and premiere screenings every night. This year the festival organizer’s created an “Isolated Cinema” contest; a winner was selected to spend a week watching film premieres at the isolated lighthouse. Lisa Enroth, an emergency nurse and film enthusiast, was selected as the winner. Lisa Enroth is interviewed in this episode. Also interviewed is Jonas Holmberg, artistic director of the Gothenberg Film Festival.​
