Industry Days

Stockholm is the epicenter of the Scandinavian film industry and home base to most film professionals in Sweden. Our strong international film offering combined with a wide industry network has made the Stockholm International Film Festival a natural meeting place for the Swedish film industry. We focus on connecting Stockholm's vibrant film community with producers, distributors and sales agents from all around the world. We present works-in-progress, film projects in development and introduce the next generation of Swedish filmmakers as part of our talent and development programs.

This year's Industry Days will take place on November 16-18 2021, stay tuned for more updates!

We are working hard to ensure that we will have an inspiring and interesting Industry program for this year as well. This year, the Industry Days will take a hybrid format like last year.

Accreditation will open in August 2021

Industry Days 2020 took place online, due to the current pandemic.
