The coronavirus pandemic is not holding back Scandinavia’s biggest film festival this year.

It will be hosted on an isolated island and it will have only one attendee-a healthcare worker, selected from 12,000 applicants.

Lisa Enroth, Swedish nurse and film fan is the 2021 Gothenburg Film Festival’s castaway.

She will be spending a week on the remote island of Pater Noster, watching a lot of films.

"The wind, the sea, the possibility of being part of a totally different kind of reality for a week - all this is really attractive," said Enroth,

She will be keeping a daily video diary that will appear on the festival's website.

The festival's CEO Mirja Wester said: "It feels particularly right to be able to give this unique experience to one of the many heroes of the healthcare system who are all working so hard against COVID-19."
