SF plans homecoming

Company to return to original film studios

AMSTERDAM — Swedish film and distribution giant Svensk Filmindustri (SF) will move its headquarters back to Gamla Filmstaden, the site of the 80-year-old company’s original film studios.

SF moved into Gamla Filmstaden in 1919 and moved out nearly a half-century later after cranking out more than 350 films.

“We wanted a place with soul, where we could have a sense of our own history,” Rasmus Ramstad, president and CEO of SF, told Daily Variety.

The move will take place at the end of the year 2000, but the new digs will house only SF’s offices and several hundred employees.

SF announced last year it would rent out production facilities in the future and sell its current $10 million, state-of-the-art office and production studios in south Stockholm, which it moved into only three years ago.
