Back in fine, physical form, the 2021 edition of the Stockholm International Film Festival is well into its second week and kicks off its annual Industry Days event today, with a jam-packed programme running from 16-18 November, comprising seminars, presentations and panel discussions. The attendance count is at 350, with an additional 50 joining digitally.

Sharing their thoughts on the future of Nordic original film production in a digitalised society are Christian Wikander, commissioning editor/VP original programming, HBO Nordic; Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, director of Nordic Originals, Netflix; Karin Lindström, head of Nordic Originals at Amazon Studios; and Filippa Wallestam, EVP/chief content officer at Nordic Entertainment Group. Closing off day one will be the seminar “You’re My Inspiration”, exploring motivation, aspirations and influence in different areas of production. Joining the conversation are directors Sebastian Johansson Micci, Elsa Rosengren, Nathalie Álvarez Mesén, Luàna Bajrami and film professor Nadi Tofighian.
