Filmföreningen Flimmer is a film association that provides a variety of films to the residents of Norrköping and the rest of Sweden. Flimmer has existed in its current form since 2001. In a city steeped in tradition and history, Flimmer has successfully established itself as a local supplier of quality films.
The main events Flimmer arranges are the Norrköping Film Festival Flimmer, an outdoor cinema and an outdoor cinema tour that takes the Flimmer brand around the entire country.
Flimmer creates dynamic venues where audience, filmmakers and films collide. We offer innovative and unexpected experiences from all over the world to film lovers of all ages. Our screenings are personal and professional events that affect viewers by moving them and challenging their minds.
The association has grown financially and in size since its birth. Increasing number of members and a rising turnover has given Flimmer the opportunity to give more to the public.
Norrköping Filmfestival Flimmer
The town of Norrköping has had a film festival since 1998. In 2001 Flimmer became solely responsible for the production of the film festival.
Flimmer Norrköping Filmfestival is one of Sweden’s bigger film festivals. Throughout the years major films and documentaries on narrow subjects have all had a place at the festival in Norrköping. For Flimmer width and diversity are of the utmost importance.

Submission 15:th Norrkoping filmfestival Flimmer
The 15th annual festival will take place between the 3rd and 14th of October this year. Following the huge success of last year's festival, Flimmer will continue to offer a multitude of films to please anybody who is genuinely interested in cinema. All the films are shown in Norrköping and screened at times and in venues to maximise your enjoyment.
This year the attempt is not only to maintain the quality and variety of last year’s festival but also to make this the festival experience even more memorable. Special for this year is that the festival turns 15, a fragile, but at the same time strong age, inspiring us to think about change and identity. As a 15-yearold the Flimmer program will provoke, be angry or political at some times and others have the sense of pure joy and exuberance. Flimmer 2013 will shine a light on people who dare to question conventions, both characters in films but also filmmakers who use new, creative methods of storytelling.
The main venue with three top modern auditoriums that host the screenings is Cnema, www.cnema.se
, which opened in 2011, attracting cinema-goers in Norrköping and the East Sweden region.
Since the early days of Flimmer the association has offered people in Norrköping outdoor cinema screenings under starry skies, free of charge. The outdoor cinema is Flimmer’s most visited event and a renowned and beloved summer happening. Each summer thousands of people enjoy the marvel that is cinema in the arms of nature.
Outdoor Cinema Tour
Since 2004 Flimmer has expanded the outdoor cinema concept to cover all of Sweden. Flimmer gives clients its know-how and technical competence to deliver movies outdoors during the summer. From the north of Sweden to the southern shores Swedes have been able to receive what people in Norrköping raved about for years.
