Ikon

A forum for short documentaries

From 1999 to 2002 Story produced the television program Ikon for the Swedish Television. Ikon focused on the short creative documentary. Short documentaries can be funny, dramtic, experimental and drastic. Animations and art films with a documentary base were also screened in Ikon. Young talented filmmakers made films and more experienced filmmakers could experiment. 122 films were screened in 34 programs. During four years the short documentary genre in Sweden got production money and a window in Public-service Television. A majority of the films were commissioned but there were also acquisitions of Swedish and foreign films. Ikon-films have been in festivals all over the world and received international awards.
