“Co-opted” for national cultural prestige, economic growth, place promotion and structural economic change? Notes on the increasing production of European films
Research output: Contribution to conference › Paper, not in proceeding
Specifically, the activities of the Swedish/Scandinavian co-producer/regional film fund/public company Film i Väst will come under critical scrutiny. Among a large range of activities, the fund has facilitated a transition process which has meant that Scandinavian cinema has become marked by the “hybrid states and hyphenated identities”, typical of current European cinema. Additionally, the fund has enabled significantly larger production volumes in Sweden, Scandinavia and Northern Europe during the last two decades.
A pivotal query is therefore how the examination of the production activities of an individual regional film fund may illuminate a larger context marked by increasing production and co-production of European films, and the mechanisms supporting it, despite the circumstance that signs of increasing demand are difficult to detect.
