What is Showcase Sweden?

The world appears to have an appetite for the works of Swedish creatives. Be it Oscar-winning documentary, female actor or cinematographer. Be it chart-topping artists and music composers. Be it copy-writers or art directors in advertising. Be it avant-garde fashion designers. Or be it video games with hundreds of millions of players: Swedish creativity is in the spotlight more than ever.

Did you know Swedish composer Max Martin has
written 19 songs that made the Billboard #1?

Showcase Sweden collects some of the best examples of Swedish creativity in the form of videos: music videos, film trailers, game videos, fashion show outtakes and adverts. While accessible for anyone to enjoy, Showcase Sweden is also a tool for anyone who wishes to show what Sweden has to offer. All videos are free for non-commercial use, feel free to link to or embed on a website, play on-stage as part of a speech or display on a screen in an expo. Or make an interactive presentation to keep guests entertained in a lobby or reception: these videos are a raw material for you to use when you want to showcase Sweden. Go creative!
