Text by Maaret Koskinen
Professor Maaret Koskinen, the first scholar given access to Ingmar Bergman’s private papers and appointed Honorary Ingmar Bergman Professor by Stockholm University and the Ingmar Bergman Foundation jointly in 2009, has authored several books on Bergman’s work in film, theatre, and literature. For the Swedish Institute she has written a text (link below). It was re-edited in order to commemorate the Ingmar Bergman jubilee in 2018. It is accessible online and also available for translation and print locally. The text can be distributed during seminars, film festivals and exhibitions.
Ingmar Bergman timeline
The Ingmar Bergman timeline provides photos, texts and a diagram of his extensive output; that included around 60 films, 172 theatre productions and approximately 300 writings. The full scale version is 3,5 meters long and 1 meter high. The high resolution files are availible upon request.
- Contact the partner cinema who will perform the film screenings and ensure that they have Digital Cinema Package (DCP) equipment. DCP is a global digital standard for screenings of high-quality films with copy protection.
- Identify the contact person at the cinema who will be responsible for the technological aspects of the screening and for implementation of the material sent from the Swedish Institute’s film provider in Sweden.
- Set up your project at the film portal.
- Once the booking is completed, the Swedish Institute will send a confirmation indicating when the film will be delivered. Simultaneously, our supplier Way Creative AB, will contact the cinema’s manager in charge of projection.
- The DCP format is unique in that it will save a copy of the film in the cinema’s system that remains until the screenings are completed. The media used to deliver the film should be forwarded to the next screening site or returned to the Swedish Institute’s supplier immediately after use with an express courier service.
