Beginning today, May 10, filmmakers from four different parts of the world will be able to submit their applications to Göteborg Film Fund 2021. The fund aims to contribute to a diversified media landscape, with increased artistic freedom and free speech. During severe crisis the area of culture often is deprioritized. The on-going pandemic has severely affected the access to distribution channels as well as financing for film production. A situation that may undermine democracy, especially in regions with an unstable economic or political system.
