Exclusive Output Deal for FLX & AB Svensk Filmindustri


STOCKHOLM: Nordic film studio AB Svensk Filmindustri (SF) and Swedish production company FLX, which is behind the local hit The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, have inked an exclusive output agreement for the region.

The deal takes effect this year and covers the distribution of FLX’s new projects in development. This includes FLX’s upcoming titles in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland, but reportedly excludes the sequel to The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

FLX is owned and run by creators Felix Herngren, Pontus Edgren, Niclas Carlsson and Bonnier Growth Media and specializes in drama and comedy. The company has produced TV series such as Solsidan, Boy Machine, Torpederna, Bonusfamiljen and Inte ok. In addition, several formats are under development in the U.S.

“FLX will make major investments in the next few years to develop the next generation of commercial and high-quality feature films,” said Pontus Edgren, the managing partner of FLX. “Our portfolio consists of strong original ideas and IP with local and international potential. We looked for a strong partner from the start and we have this with SF.”

“FLX is one of the most successful production companies in the Nordics with a strong team of key talent and creators,” added Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, the chief content officer at SF. “We have a firm belief in the company and its ability to deliver box office success. This agreement reflects our strategy of working closely with a number of Nordic production companies and being part of the whole process from development to launch.”
