Swedish Film Institute


The Communication department has overriding and strategic responsibility for the Swedish Film Institute’s external and internal communication. It is responsible for the Filminstitutet.se and Guldbaggen.se websites, and for the Film Institute’s social media channels.

The Swedish Film Institute’s promise is: “Together, we enable more people to create, experience and be enriched by film and moving pictures.” Within the framework of this, Communication is also active in managing contacts with the wider society and acts as an opinion leader.

The Communication department’s field of activity includes for example:

Recurring events

All year round, the Swedish Film Institute communicates news and information about Swedish film to the Swedish and international media. Recurring events include press conferences regarding the upcoming spring and autumn film releases, as well as perhaps the biggest event in the Swedish film calendar: the annual Guldbagge Awards Ceremony.

Information material

The Swedish Film Institute produces a large volume of information material every year. Examples of annual reports for which the Communication department is responsible include financial reports, Facts & Figures, and the Gender Equality Report.

The Swedish Film Institute’s public operations

Communication is responsible for increasing knowledge of the Swedish Film Institute’s public services Cinemateket/The Cinematheque, Film Forum and The Library.
