Film i Skåne is a regional centre for film with the task of promoting all aspects of films, commissioned and financed by Region Skåne. Film i Skåne has been in operation since 1995. Since 2009, Film i Skåne AB is part of Business Region Skåne .
Our regional film work is run in five main fields – Film Education, Screening, Production, Ystad Studios and Southern Sweden Film Commission. We take an overall view, which means that we see a progression where film education – see, talk about and make films – results in the creation of an interested and demanding audience. This audience consists of active visitors to cinemas and media users, who will also be tomorrow’s filmmakers. The creation of meeting places, workshops, festivals and marketplaces inspires both a new form of narrative and the discovery of new distribution opportunities to reach new viewers.
Through the co-production of short, documentary, feature films and TV series we attract capital that is spent in the region on services, facilities and labour that help develop the audio-visual infrastructure in Skåne. We take an overall view where the development of the audience, film makers and the media industry is a tool for developing the film environment in Skåne.
Skåne and its role in the Öresund Region offers new opportunities for development and for wider alliances. Contacts with various players such as universities, production companies, municipalities and film organisations both inside and outside the region create networks where future-oriented, highly skilled and hi-tech companies can thrive.
The Film Commission was established in fall 2003 to promote the region as an international film location and to service international film and TV productions shooting in the region.
