The Swedish Film Institute unveils the selected for the investment in female screenwriters!
The selected ones are: Nisti Stêrk, Tove Forsman, Sofie Forsman, Carin Pollak, Therese Bringholm, Dunja Vujović, Petra Revenue, Maria Karlsson and Malin Marmgren. Missing from the picture are Nisti Stêrk, Agneta Fagerström Olsson, Cristina Gottfridsson, Sara Heldt and Ida Kjellin
A total of thirteen screenwriters have pitched ten projects with the possibility of becoming a feature film, with an estimated budget of over SEK 30 million.
The Institute’s statistics show that the proportion of female screenwriters in Swedish film is only 30 percent, and that the proportion of women in all positions is decreasing as the budget grows. The manuscript (which extends until 2021) is part of remedying this, to increase gender equality and the diversity of stories.
