Swedish film heritage to be digitized

Great news! The Swedish Film Institute has just announced the upcoming digitization of their film heritage during the next seven to ten years: 2500 feature films and 6000 short films in a project worth three-hundred million SEK (34,5 million EUR).

I am curious (blue (; ) to find out exactly what the project will entail, but evidently one of the great advantages of the project will be that the films will get to travel on a much wider array of platforms and create new encounters between users and Swedish cinema. More info – in Swedish – can be found here.
