Reorganisation of film policy

Published

The Government proposes that, as of 2017, the State is to take overall responsibility for national film policy. The State will end the Film Agreement, which has for a long time financed and governed parts of state film policy.

To finance the reorganisation, the Government is setting aside SEK 25 million in 2016 and SEK 235 million a year in 2017 and 2018. This includes a special investment of SEK 25 million per year during the period 2016–2019 to strengthen smaller cinemas in rural areas and small towns.

Film in all its forms is one of the most important forms of expression of our time. It is an art form that reaches the majority of people, irrespective of age and background. Sweden is a small market for films. Without joint investments it is impossible to maintain Swedish film production at a high level.
