Steffen Andersen-Möller, who has been Head of the International Department since 2018, has decided to resign of his own volition. Petter Mattsson has been appointed Acting Head of Department from 16 June. Petter Mattsson is currently Festival Manager at the department and is familiar with its operations.
“Petter Mattsson has long experience of working with Swedish film on the international arena at the Swedish Film Institute. He will be taking over where Steffen Andersen-Möller leaves off and will oversee the department’s day-to-day activities,” says Kristina Colliander, Head of the Film Funding Department.
The Swedish Film Institute is a collective voice for film in Sweden, and a meeting-place for experiences and insights that elevate film on all levels. We preserve and make available Sweden’s film heritage, work to educate children and young people in film and moving images, support the production, distribution and screening of valuable film, and represent Swedish film internationally. A broad diversity of narratives establishes discussions and insights that strengthen the individual and our democracy. Together, we enable more people to create, experience and be enriched by film.
