An Unrivalled Library of Outstanding Swedish Film Now Available on Movie Transit™ at A Cinema Near You

The Swedish Film Institute (Stockholm) today announced their decision to share and distribute their vast library of classic Swedish films for cinema audiences in partnership with Unique Digital’s Movie Transit™ network.
 
The Swedish Film Heritage, consisting of over 8,600 titles, is currently being digitised by the Swedish Film Institute to make selected features available to Swedish cinema audiences everywhere. Utilising the Movie Transit™ Network, Swedish Cinema goers will now be able to experience classics such as Körkarlen (1921) by Victor Sjöström, Såsom I en spegel (1961) by Ingmar Bergman, Amorosa (1986) by Mai Zetterling, and Resan till Melonia (1989) by Per Åhlin.
 
 “Movie Transit is the only digital distribution platform to retain and share such priceless content for audiences of every age to experience and enjoy in the best possible viewing environments “- said Eyvind Ljungquist, Nordic Sales Director in Unique Digital.
 
“It is indeed the first time in the world that such a range of successful and historic films will be available on demand in the cinema” he added.
 
“With the Film Heritage Digitising project, we’ve brought back a wealth of Swedish Classics to the big screen, and we’re very excited to be able to make these available to Swedish Cinemas across the country” announced Mathias Rosengren, Head of the Film Heritage department at Stiftelsen Svenska Filminstitutet.
 
Unique Digital’s cutting edge platform Movie Transit™ was the first network in the world to offer nationwide distribution of Theatrical Feature Films via landline broadband and is currently delivering films in 370 Cinemas across Sweden. Using this nationwide digital network, the vast library of films will be available to over 90% of Swedish Cinemas for audiences to continually appreciate and enjoy.
 
Movie Transit™ is currently the largest broadband delivery platform in Europe, delivering the majority of content to over 1,700 theatres across Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, UK and Ireland.
 
About the Swedish Film Institute
 The Film Institute was founded in 1963 by the Swedish state and the various professional bodies of the film industry. Its remit – to support the production of new films, the distribution and screening of worthwhile films, to preserve and promote Sweden's film heritage and to represent Swedish film at an international level – is defined in the Film Agreement, the Film Bill, and in the annual document of grant appropriations from the Ministry of Culture.
 
The Film Institute is financed by a combination of state funding and the Film Agreement, which stipulates a ten percent levy on cinema admission charges.
