However, the mentioned festivals are not alone in the cinema world. There are not less than 20 important cinema festivals including Stockholm.

Firstly, Stockholms filmfestival started its history in 1990 when it was creates by three enthusiasts Ignas Sheyinius, Kim Klein, and Git Sheynius. The latest is the current director of the festival, by the way. These three people considered that Sweden, country with capable cinematographic traditions and motherland of Ingmar Bergman, certainly needs a serious cinema forum. 27 years ago this idea inspired 200 people who loved cinema, including volunteers from city administration and enterpreneurs who gave financial support in the organization. 

"Movies from the station": the birth of cinema
