Thank you and see you next year!
The tenth edition of the Bergman Week was a roaring success with almost 40 procent more visitors than last year. The theme of the programme was Bergman as an author and autobiographical writing, and among the guests were writers Maria Sveland, Karl Ove Knausgård, P C Jersild, PO Enquist and Marlene van Niekerk.
Director Noah Baumbauch and actress Greta Gerwig also visited the Bergman Week with their new film Frances Ha, as well as Sally Potter who premiered her film Ginger & Rosa.
Among the new additions to the programme were radio breakfasts, which were served on the terrasse of the newly renovated Bergman Center, as well as podcasts. The Bergman Film Slam, a hit from last year’s programme, also attracted a full house.
We would like to thank all our participants, visitors and staff. See you next year!

News from Bergmancenter
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.
On Sunday night the ninth edition of Bergman Week ended in the sunset of the ”rauk” landscape at Gamlehamn on Fårö with the outdoor radio performance of the Strindberg play ”The Dutchman”, directed by Ingmar Bergman – the first of Bergman’s thirty-some Strindberg adaptations for stage, radio and TV.
Many people often ask how to get hold of lectures and conversations from earlier Bergman Weeks. From now on, we will publish them for downloading here on the website!
When a lecture or conversation first is published it will be free to download, and when we move it to our archive it will cost SEK 19.
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!
