Over the years, Film i Väst co-productions have also been richly rewarded with nominations and prizes at the world’s most prestigious events, including festivals such as Cannes and Berlin, and galas such as the European Film Awards, the Golden Globes and the Oscars.
Film i Väst is a regional film fund located in West Sweden, wholly owned by Västra Götalandsregionen (The County of West Sweden), with the goal to establish West Sweden as the foremost film production region in northern Europe. The headquarters are located in Trollhättan, 70km from West Sweden’s largest city, Gothenburg.
During the past 25 years, West Sweden has established a high international standard in terms of the crew, facilities and services available for film production in the region. All elements necessary for film and TV production can be found in West Sweden, from equipment rental, a final mix studio and award winning sound and VFX companies, to more than 450 qualified film crew workers. In addition to West Sweden’s diverse locations, there is also Studio Fares in Trollhättan, the largest purpose-built soundstage in Scandinavia.
