Film i Skåne is a regional film organisation with the task of promoting film-culture activities and contributing to growth in Skåne through film production. Film i Skåne was formed in 1995, and since 2009 has been one of four subsidiaries in the Business Region Skåne Group. Film shot and produced in Skåne favours growth and development of the region’s film industry, while also helping to make Skåne more visible internationally.
Children and Young People
Film i Skåne works in various ways to increase young people’s opportunities to see, understand and create moving pictures. Film i Skåne arranges for film teachers to help develop skills and work with young people, and also runs Ystad Studios Film Camp – a teaching resource directly linked to the production facilities at Ystad Studios – as well as Pixel Skånes Filmfestival.
Screening and Distribution
Film should be able to be seen and discussed across the whole of Skåne province. Achieving this requires contact with film festivals, municipal authorities, clubs, societies and other organisations, the aim being to strengthen initiatives locally and increase the general public’s access to film. We also consult with filmmakers and producers regarding different platforms for the dissemination of film.
In order to improve and enhance the professional film infrastructure of the region, Film i Skåne is involved in funding film and television production. We invest and co-produce short films, documentaries, feature films and TV series, and also focus on talent development.
Ystad Studios offers production facilities in a peaceful environment in Ystad close to Kastrup Airport, Copenhagen and northern Germany.
Southern Sweden Film Commission
The Southern Sweden Film Commission (SSFC) has been set up to promote Skåne and Southern Sweden as a shooting location, and the southern Swedish film industry internationally. Alongside Film i Väst, Filmpool Nord and Filmregion Stockholm-Mälardalen, Film i Skåne runs the national Sweden Film Commission and works with other Nordic countries within the framework of Scandinavian Locations.
