Svensk Filmindustri has been synonymous with Swedish film since it was founded on December 27th 1919, making it one of the oldest film companies in the world.
Throughout the years the company has built up a library of film rights with over 1,800 Nordic titles. In addition to its own production and distribution, SF Studios is also a major distributor of foreign films in the Nordic market.
In 2012, SF Studios became part of Bonnier Growth Media, a business area within the Bonnier group. During this time, it has focused on reorganizing its operations to market demands, the new digital reality and the opportunities beyond the Nordic borders. This spring, for example, SF Studios launched SVOD-service SF Kids, aimed at families with kids.
"Re-branding Svensk Filmindustri to SF Studios is more than just cosmetics. Svensk Filmindustri is a complicated name to communicate outside the Nordics. In the US and Europe they simply call us “Svensk”, which just means “Swedish”. We are in fact a Nordic company with affiliations in Norway, Denmark and Finland. SF Studios reflects more of who we are, and is more important as we internationalize as a company” says Jonas Fors, CEO of SF Studios.
