SF Studios has, in collaboration with The Swedish Film & TV Producers Association, The Swedish Film Institute and The Swedish Union for Performing Arts and Film, organized annual seminars to discuss and reflect on the importance of the #MeToo-movement in Sweden and push for change in working conditions throughout the film and TV industry in the region.
Supporting children initiatives
SF Studios strongly believes in sustainability, from an environmental point of view as well as from a human perspective. This is why we support initiatives that are aimed at children and young people, especially those who are vulnerable.
Our children are our future and we must do as much as we can to give them the support and the strength to grow up in a healthy and environmentally friendly world and leave them a worthy legacy. Some of the initiatives we support are Pippi of Today, My Special Day, Move It and Generation Pep.
My Special Day
For many years, SF Studios has supported the My Special Day Foundation, to help children and adolescents with critical illnesses and diagnoses. SF Studios has also offered children free screenings of SF Kids films in hospitals and free streamings of films at SF Anytime during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Move It and Generation Pep
Move It is an original SF Kids production with focus on creating joyful movements for children in their everyday life with the help of inspirational music.
Generation Pep is a foundation, founded by the Swedish Crown Princess and her spouse, to promote the health of children and young people. SF Studios has been approved as a "pepper" through the Move It initiative.
