Fårö Development has now begun its task of renovating and reconstructing the old Fårö school into a Bergman Center and Fårö Museum. In June, the European Union’s Rural Development Fund decided to approve the project ”Bergman Center on Fårö – a cultural meeting point”. This means that with additional funding from Region Gotland the Fårö Bergman Center Foundation has received a total of SEK 15,6 million to rebuild the former school on Fårö and turning it into a fully functioning and useful Bergman Center and Fårö Museum.

The Belgian filmmaking brothers Dardenne have become the modern fixtures of contemporary European cinema. Although their films are scarce in dialogue, their lyrical portrayals of people on the outskirts of society are unmistakably and uniquely dardennesque. It is with great pride and joy we welcome Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne as our guests at this year’s edition of the Bergman Week – indeed their first visit to Sweden. Book your tickets here!
