Anna Serner, head of the Swedish Film Institute, believes that Swedish actress Alicia Vikander's winning an Oscar last night could help Swedish film in the long run.

"We actually have a very good reputation abroad. We are very present in different film festivals, and we have had quite a few stars coming from Sweden, and the last one, Malik Bendjelloul with Searching for Sugarman... I mean, now we have the next Oscar, which is quite incredible," says Serner.

"That will mean that the good projects will have a possibility to find their ways abroad," she continues. She says stars can help open doors.

Vikander, whose applications to acting school were rejected five times, won an Academy Award for best supporting actress for her role in The Danish Girl.
