Film i Väst seeks projects that can compete in the most prestigious film festivals and/or be seen by a large international audience.
Film i Väst accepts applications for feature film co-productions throughout the year. All co-productions are required to bring elements of production or post-production to Västra Götaland, work with a Swedish production partner, and hire crew and workers from the region.
With Film i Väst’s growing success, the application process has become increasingly competitive. Projects need to secure the majority of financing in their own territory prior to their application, demonstrate the ability to obtain theatrical distribution in Sweden and show a potential for competitive entry at prestigious international film festivals.
