Research project:

Success in the Film and Television Industries (SiFTI)

The international research project SiFTI analyses production cultures in sustainable film and television companies in Norway, Denmark, Great Britain and the Netherlands. The goal is to produce new knowledge about how actors in the film and television industries operate in order to survive in the market place and to improve their competitiveness. The project is based on case studies of companies that have been active for at least five years and have produced popular and/or critically acclaimed films or television programmes. SiFTI has also an historical dimension that studies the growth and fall of influential film companies in Norway on the basis of archival material. The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council for the period 2013-2016.
