Stockholm International Film Festival focuses on female directors

The on-going 24th edition of Stockholm International Film Festival (Nov 6-17) has for a long time been focusing on attracting and highlighting talented female directors, scriptwriters and producers. The efforts have been successful and the festival is proud to have more than one-third female directors in this year's program. This is a very high number in international comparison.

On Saturday, November 9th, a number of acclaimed female filmmakers got together in Stockholm to discuss the film industry, its premises and its future.
