100 years of filmmaking
Since 1919, SF Studios has been a leading Nordic film studio that has produced and distributed some of cinema’s most iconic films and worked with some of the greatest talents in the industry.
We have worked with Ingmar Bergman, Ingrid Bergman, Greta Garbo, Liv Ullman, Jan Troell, Bille August, Carl Theodor Dreyer, Astrid Lindgren, Lasse Hallström, Stellan Skarsgård, Joel Kinnaman, Alicia Vikander, and more.
SF Studios has been the leading force in Swedish film and TV production for more than 100 years, having produced many of the films of Ingrid Bergman, Greta Garbo and Ingmar Bergman, as well as Astrid Lindgren’s most well-known works.
Today, SF Studios continues to produce critically acclaimed masterpieces, box office hits and popular family films.
SF Studios’ biggest film successes in recent years include films such as Borg vs. McEnroe, Britt-Marie Was Here, Bamse and the City of Thieves, JerryMaya's Detective Agency, the Easy Money-trilogy and A Man Called Ove (one of the most viewed films in Sweden of all time), as well as TV-series such as Alex, The Lawyer, The Hunters and Saga’s Stories.
In 2019, SF Studios also acquired a majority stake the Swedish production company FLX, owned by Felix Herngren and Pontus Edgren. FLX is the producer of many successful Swedish films and TV series such as Sunny Side, Bonus Family and the Netflix series Quicksand.
Through creative partnerships, SF Studios has developed a strong presence in the Norwegian film and TV market.
In 2018, SF Studios acquired the Norwegian production company Paradox, one of the most acknowledged production companies in Norway founded by Finn Gjerdrum, Stein B. Kvae and Erik Poppe. The company has produced acclaimed films such as The King’s Choice and Utöya July 22.
SF Studios also has longstanding relationships with Norwegian production companies Motion Blur, founded in 2013 by internationally acclaimed directors Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg and Harald Zwart; and Filmkameratene, founded by John M. Jacobsen, which has produced renowned films and TV series such as Heavy Water War, Trollhunter and Burning.

SF Studios' production in Denmark has been particularly strong in producing TV series, such as the comedy series Rita, the ground-breaking crime series Norskov, the award-winning The New Nurses as well as Seaside Hotel, one of the most popular shows in Danish TV history. Recent film productions include Out of Tune and Gooseboy.
SF Studios produces English language feature film to reach a broader international audience.
SF Studios is focusing on producing mainstream films for the global market, based on either Nordic IP or with top Nordic talent.
