Swede Fest creators get called out

17d3c3a185f4565ef7062c8442469080It was a big weekend for Roque Rodriguez and Bryan Harley.

Locally, the guys behind Fresno’s Swede Fest were featured as a Hidden Gem in The Bee’s annual People’s Choice Awards. They also attended Wondercon down in  Anaheim, where they got serious props from none other than director Guillermo Del Toro, who specifically mentioned their sweded trailer of “Pacific Rim” during his panel. He also posed for a picture and invited them to the film’s premiere.


Congratulations. It’s great to see these guys getting the attention they deserve.
