THE STOCKHOLM INDUSTRY OFFICE
With a relaxed and creative approach The Stockholm Industry Office brings together an inspiring mix of exciting talent and key industry players. Stockholm has emerged as the leading gateway to the Scandinavian market and among the many seminars and events in 2012 the Industry Office hosted “Variety Up Next” and seminars "European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs", “International Co-productions” among others. As a professional in the film business, you should register for an accreditation to the Stockholm International Film Festival. With an Industry Pass you’ll be able to see our fresh Work in Progress-presentations, attend interesting seminars, attend our cocktails at the Berns Hotel and meet lots of other industry delegates at our different events.
The industry program also included exclusive master classes where the industry had the chance to meet and listen to internationally acclaimed film professionals, with the directors Alejandro González Iñárritu, Ursula Meier, Sophie Fiennes, Lucy Mulloy, Bill Guttentag and the producer Peter Aalbeck Jensen and cinematographer Christopher Doyle.
FESTIVAL ON DEMANDFive films without Swedish distribution from the festival program are each year shown on demand and made available to film lovers all over Sweden (through Telia digital-tv). These films also compete for the distribution prize Telia Film Award, a cash prize of 100 000 SEK. The 2012 winner was the intense Una Noche by Lucy Mulloy.
STOCKHOLM FILM LAB & STHLM DEBUTIn 2012 the Industry Office started two new talent programs - Stockholm Film Lab och STHLM Debut - where young emerging filmmakers are given the chance to participate in master classes and work shops with established filmmakers and meet both Swedish and international industry professionals.
STOCKHOLM FEATURE FILM AWARDThe festival has since its start supported young talented Swedish filmmakers. For the last few years the festival has also worked actively to promote and acknowledge female directors. In 2011 the festival took the important next step by funding a feature film by an emerging Swedish female director.
The Award was initiated by the Stockholm International Film Festival, with Telia as the main contributor and with support from the Swedish Film Institute, Sveriges Television, Europa Sound & Vision and Dagsljus. The films will be distributed in the Nordic and Baltic countries by Nonstop Entertainment.
The 2012 winner was director Amanda Adolfsson with her project Young Sophie Bell which premieres at the festival in 2014.
1 KM FILMThe Stockholm International Film Festival’s short film scholarship 1 Km Film is, since the start in 1990, the most valuable help for young, emerging Swedish filmmakers. The winner is awarded production aid from Nordisk Film Shortcut, Dagsljus, Teaterförbundet/ för scen och film and the Swedish Film institute.
