Stockholm Film Festival Industry Days

The Stockholm Film Festival’s Industry Days takes place between the 17th and 19th of November, and they have announced a full programme of up and comers plus a special focus on Finland, the Nordisk Film and TV Fund reports.
The talent development programme STHLM Debut has five works in progress such as the genre film Aniara co-directed by Pella Kågerman and Hugo Lilja based on a sci-fi poem written in 1956 by Swedish Nobel Prize winner Harry Martinson. Annika Rogell is producing for Meta Film Sweden.

Surprise is a new feature by Kristina Humle (Real Humans) produced by Cilla Holma and executive produced by Anna Croneman. A family organises a surprise party for a man who is not alone when he finally shows up.

As part of the Focus on Finland, two Finnish projects will be shown as Works in Progress: the documentary Once I was a Dragonfly by Elli Toivoniemi and the film Love Records by Aleksi Mäkelä.

TV dramas that will premiere at Stockholm’s Fest include Norway’s Occupied and the Scandinavian version of the Finnish revenge drama Black Widows.

Among the Seminars is an industry round table about the Future Funding of Swedish Film and a Masterclass with Joachim Trier. The Norwegian director’s latest film Louder than Bombs will screen at the 26th Stockholm Film Festival main competition section.
