The Swedish Film Institute started to digitize films in 2013. Our archival film collections contain 2,500 Swedish feature-length films and 6,700 short films. Each year we digitize new films, and make them available for screenings.
Which films are digitized?
On Svensk Filmdatabas you can search and find all digitized Swedish films under the label "Digitaliserad Film". (Note that it's all in Swedish)
On the English version of Svensk Filmdatabas you can also find all digitized Swedish films with English subtitles under the label "Promoted Film" - "Classics": The Swedish Film Database.
Classics in focus
Each year we choose a handful digitized films that we want to present to an international audience. For these films we can send screeners in advance, and then also help with programming, booking and stills and posters. The films are all available on dcp, and have English subtitles. With the chosen films we hope that they will generate quriousity for more films and film makers from the Swedish film heritage.
