EFP Representative

Petter Mattsson

Swedish Film Institute

"In a global film climate where the position of quality films is getting more and more uncertain, organisations like European Film Promotion are increasingly important. EFP is a good platform, not only to promote Swedish film and talent, but also to increase the status of European cinema worldwide.”
Pia Lundberg

The Swedish Film Institute (Svenska Filminstitutet SFI) established in 1963, is a foundation whose operations are regulated by an agreement between the state on one side, and the film- and television industry on the other. The agreement is based on the principle that those who exhibit films should contribute to the financing of new Swedish films.

The main tasks of the Swedish Film Institute are:

    to support the production of Swedish quality films
    to promote the import, distribution and exhibition of quality films
    to preserve films and materials of interest to cinematic history
    to promote Swedish cinematic culture internationally

The Swedish Film Institute promotes Swedish cinema internationally via its International Department which handles festivals, international relations and the presentation of film focuses.
The International Department also publishes information material for the international market including the magazine Swedish Film.
The Institute sometimes cooperates internationally with the film institutes of other Nordic countries under the umbrella Scandinavian Films.

Scandinavian Films, the umbrella organisation of the 5 Nordic Film Institutions, is one of the 10 founding members of EFP. The Swedish Film Institute became an individual EFP member in 1998.
