Swedish Film Institute 50th Anniversary

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

last night the swedish film institute celebrated its 50th anniversary with an afternoon reception and an evening party on the 6th day of the cannes film festival. there was a lot of amazing food and dancing. it was perhaps the best event of the entire festival.

anna serner, ceo of the swedish film institute took this opportunity to announce a directive that will equally divide funding for projects directed by women and by men. she pointed to statistics which prove that female directors tend to make 1 film and then vanish. and pointed out that perhaps it is because women find it more challenging to raise money for their projects than men.
