SVT is one of the world’s most award-winning TV companies at international festivals.
In recent years drama series from SVT have won several international prizes, i.e. an International Emmy® for Millennium, Prix Europa, Banff Rockie Awards and The Golden Nymph for The Bridge, Prix Italia and Seoul Drama Awards for Real Humans, and Séries Mania in Paris for Don’t Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves.
Other SVT programmes that have received international awards lately include investigative reportages Surfing the Web of Hate (New York Festivals) and The Women of Kabul (Golden Nymph), arts programme Dance My Heart Out (Golden Prague) and sports docs The Second Sport and Sixten (FICTS, Milano).
Competing in international TV festivals is important to SVT, to spread our content and make sure that our programmes measure up to global standards.
We proactively submit entries to the leading festivals in the world, i.e. iEmmy, Prix Europa, Prix Italia, Banff Rockie Awards, FIPA, IDFA, and more.
We also submit programmes to other festivals, when we have niche content suitable for a certain festival.
Other programmes, not submitted by SVT, may be available for festivals upon request (subject to an administrative/technical fee).
Please feel free to contact Niklas Ahlgren, Festival Coordinator at SVT, if you have any further questions.
