The past and future of Swedish film

"I have high hopes for the future"
5:05 min

Radio Sweden visits the Film House in Stockholm to take a look into the future of Swedish film and to delve into its past, by diving deep into the Swedish Film Institute's Ingmar Bergman archives.

The Swedish Film Institute has a two-fold mission: to foster and promote Swedish films  and to preserve Swedish film history. 

And Swedish film has a long history, since the beginning of film in fact. From the golden age of the silent era to Ingmar Bergman and the erotic films of the Swedish sin - Swedish cinema has attracted large audiences at home and abroad.

Gunnar Almér, who works at the Film Institute promoting Swedish films abroad, tells Radio Sweden that there has been a reawakening recently of Swedish film internationally, with many rising stars appearing on the big screen.
