Sweden wants women

BY GEOFFREY MACNAB As part of a continuing effort to boost the profile of female directors, Swedish public funders and festival organisations are together launching a prize which will enable a fledgling director to direct a feature film. The Stockholm Interna-

t ional Fi lm Fest ival , together with the Swedish Film Institute, telecommu- nications company Telia, and Trade, the Swedish technical film production

association, are behind the initiative. The resulting film will premiere at the Stock- holm International Film Festival the following year. “We see an opportunity

to both encourage Swedish directing talent and pro- mote female film-makers,” says Git Scheynius, director of the Stockholm Interna- tional Film Festival. Application details will

be revealed in the summer, and the nominees will be shortlisted this autumn.
