Bergman site now available in English

From today the English language version of Ingmar Bergman Face to Face, the official website of the Ingmar Bergman Foundation, will be launched at

Ingmar Bergman Face to Face is the world's largest multi-media collection showcasing Ingmar Bergman's professional career, which dates back to 1938. The site holds thousands of stills, video clips and newly-written texts. It also covers his less well-known radio plays, theatre and opera productions, as well as his books and essays.

Launched last September, the Swedish version of the website was voted the 2005 Swedish Cultural Web Site of the year. This year the website has also won awards for its content and design.

In 2001 Bergman donated his collected archives to the Swedish Film Institute. Following the donation, the Film Institute, in partnership with the Royal Dramatic Theatre, Svensk Filmindustri and Sveriges Television, founded the Ingmar Bergman Foundation, the initiator of the website.
