No fewer than seventeen Swedish films are due to take part in the CPH:DOX Made in Sweden section. The feature competition includes Mr Governor by Måns Månsson, Erik Gandini's Videocracy and Maggie in Wonderland by Mark Hammarberg, Ester Martin Bergsmark and Beatrice "Maggie" Andersson.
The short films competition includes Subtitles by Anders Kreuger, Robin Färdig's I Love the Game of the Hockey, a Documentary About What's Not Hip Hop in the Suburb and all of the films by the artist Nathalie Djurberg, whose clay animations will be the subject of a special focus.

Other Swedish films include Mia Engberg's feminist short films project Dirty Diaries, Jesper Ganslandt and Martin Degrell's The Film I'm no Longer talking about, which looks at filmmaking and entrepreneurship in the IT age, and Tarik Saleh's animated dystopia festival favourite Metropia.

The festival will also be staging a panel discussion about nurturing talent in Swedish film and production. Among the panellists will be the Swedish film commissioners Tove Torbiörnsson and Peter "Piodor" Gustafsson alongside Erika Wasserman (Fasad) and Erik Hemmendorff (Plattform Produktion).

– I'm delighted that they're recognising the success of Swedish films. They've selected some of the best films we have, and I'm also very impressed by their selection mix. In seven years CPH:DOX has established itself as one of the leading festivals in Europe, says Sara Yamashita Rüster, head of documentaries at the Swedish Film Institute's international department.
