The increasingly strong position of French films at leading Scandinavian film festivals – as shown by the "French Connection" selection at the Göteborg festival and the introduction of French film sections, such as the 1st appearance of the "French Touch" category at the Stockholm Film Festival in November 2004 (an initiative of the French Embassy) – is effectively raising the profile and exposure French films in this region.

The Göteborg International Film Festival in figures:
Budget: €1,037,000
400 films
110,000 spectators
60 seminars
Around 1,800 accredited professionals
