The Swedish Film Institute's Filmrummet (“The Film Room”) is a series of seminars, workshops and talks, held at the Film House in Stockholm and at other locations in Sweden. Our ambition is to be a creative meeting place for discussion and dynamic controversy, a forum for explorative processes surrounding film, film policy and cinematic art.
