Svizzera - International Film Guide Survey

02/02/2009 - 2006 was quite a good year for Swiss cinema, both at home and abroad. The domestic market share for Swiss films, which had hovered around 2% for most of the past ten years, rose to 9.5%, second only to American films and ahead of releases from the UK, France and Germany.
Internationally, the visibility of Swiss cinema was enhanced by increased sales and presence at significant festivals.
For 2007 the domestic market share is expected to rank somewhat lower, although sales and festival presence continue to grow, and Switzerland’s renewed participation in the MEDIA programme should bring more Swiss films European screens.
