Slyngstad to top film fund

Public prod'n coin to be absorbed

OSLO — Stein Slyngstad, managing director of Oslo’s Onstad Art Museum, was appointed last week CEO of the Norwegian Film Fund, the new state institution that will be responsible for the allocation of the government’s $22 million annual subsidy for film production.

As of July 1, the fund established by the Culture Ministry will absorb all public production finance previously distributed by the Norwegian Film Institute (NFI), the Audiovisual Production Fund (AVPF) and state-owned production house, Norsk Film — which has now been dismantled — to solely award feature film, documentary and short film projects.

A former financial controller of the Oslo Municipal Cinemas and administrator of the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Slyngstad will recommend projects for support with a group of consultants.

“The appointment confirms that the new fund is going to work, and going to work soon,” said Jan Erik Holst, managing director, international relations, at the Norwegian Film Institute.
