The aptly named Filmhuset (quite literally Swedish for "The House of Film") is home to the Swedish Film Institute. Built in the late ’60s, the building’s brutalist architecture mirrors the daily film-related activities going on inside. Windows resembling perforations on a strip of film, elevator doors looking like make-up mirrors. In fact, the building as a whole is shaped like a camera, and – from above – it almost looks like a roll of film.

In addition to being the center of the Swedish film industry, you’ll also find Sweden’s largest library with books and magazines on film. Filmhuset is also the main venue for Cinemateket; a movie club showcasing a wide program of auteur masterpieces, cult rarities, world cinema, and beloved classics.
