AMF – One of the oldest film collections in the world
The foundation AMF – Army, Navy (Marine) and Air force (Flying) film – has one of the oldest collections of film in the world and is also one of the earliest producers of film in Sweden. These collections are placed in our ecological archive, which consists of a total of 10 000 titles placed in over 30 000 film boxes. In addition to their own films the AMF also handles an archive of films from the Defensive Forces at the request of the Military Record Office. But also at the request of several other organizations and companies such as the National Police Board, the Bernadotte Academy, Coop as well as private film companies such as Scandinature Film and Mirakel Film & TV.
The activity is run by Armé-Marin- och Flygfilm Digital AB, which stores and digitalizes films and videos as well as making the historical collections accessible.
The AMF also owns the film company AKA-Film AB, which produces films for both defence related activities and the civilian market. AKA-Film also produces films on military history at the request of the AMF Foundation and documentary productions for the Swedish television.
