Culture commissioner Roger Mogert is also the one who has been given the honour to hand over the award to the winning director at 5.30PM.

– Film is an artform that enlightens and touches the audience like nothing else. It is also a projection of the world we are living in at the same time as it strives to change it. With the Stockholm Impact Award we want to highlight films that reflect on our society and don’t back down to explore sensitive subjects. I’m very happy that the City of Stockholm together with the Stockholm International Film Festival is able to hand out the Stockholm Impact Award for the third year in a row, says culture commissioner Roger Mogert at the City of Stockholm.

The winning director’s film will be screened exclusively at Klarabiografen, Kulturhuset at 6PM. To get access to this screening a ticket is required, which also guarantees a seat for the onstage discussion.
