Stockholm Film Festival


The Stockholm Film Festival, also known as the Stockholm International Film Festival, is a film festival that has been held annually in the city of Stockholm, Sweden, since 1990. The festival is run by a non-profit organization of the same name with the support of the Stockholm City Council, the City of Stockholm and the Swedish Film Institute.

 

The film festival takes place in November each year and shows around 150 films from different countries.

 

The festival aims to highlight young filmmakers. On average, one out of every three films at the festival is made by a newcomer and only directors who have made a maximum of two films can participate in the competition section. It also seeks to broaden the range of high-quality and innovative films, to give visitors an orientation to modern cinema and stimulate debate, through conferences and seminars.

 

The Stockholm International Film Festival also organizes the Stockholm Youth Film Festival for children and young people in April and the Stockholm Sommarbio Film Festival in August. For five nights, films are screened outdoors in the Rålambshovsparken park.
