The Industry at the Festival

Göteborg Film Festival is with its 130 000 admissions the leading film festival and the primary networking platform for the film industry in the Nordic countries. All through the festival week around 1500 accredited producers, commissioners, directors, screenwriters and other industry experts attend our Industry events and film and seminar programmes.

The Swedish Industry Weekend starts off the festival. It has a vast seminar programme focusing on Swedish film production and politics, about 70 Swedish films will have their world premiere during the weekend and there is a short film fair, that finishes with the competition Startsladden – Best Swedish short.

Nordic Film Market is our international marketplace and a networking venue for the international and Nordic film industry. It serves as a platform for networking and business and gives an overview of the latest trends and upcoming productions from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Check out the Nordic Film Market page for more info regarding market films, works in progress and delegates lists.

The Nordic Film Market days start off with TV Drama Vision, a two-day seminar highlighting current Nordic and international TV drama. Another point of interest during the NFM days is the Nostradamus report, written and presented by journalist Johanna Koljonen during a seminar with key industry players. The Nostradamus Project produces annual briefings on contemporary trends, gathers analysis from the best minds in the industry and sketches out the nearest future. For the 2017 year's edition the Nordisk Film & TV Fond Prize was introduced – an award for Best TV Drama Script worth SEK 200,000.

Göteborg Film Festival also runs Nordic Film Lab, a networking forum for upcoming northern filmmakers, and Nordic Film Lab Discovery, where participants of the Nordic Film Lab are given an oppertunity to present their projects. The focus of both Labs are on the development of the creative and artistic processes of filmmaking.
