Locations for film, photo or events

Are you looking for unique environments or special premises for filming, photography, music events and events?

Within SFV's care you’ll find all kinds of locations. From castles to huts, nature to culture, ancient times to the present, tall lighthouses to wild waterfalls, long coastlines to dark forests.

All, a part of Sweden's history and future, and characterized by its period’s details and special atmospheres. Many of our tenants, at the over 200 visitor destinations we manage, are used to hosting both large music events and extensive film productions.

Our natural and cultural heritage

Many of the places we manage are restricted by special rules. Together we have an important role in protecting Sweden's natural and cultural heritage by respecting the regulations and showing consideration for those who operate on site. It could be, for example: a state building monument, a protected object or a wildlife reserve. To find out what applies to the particular location you are interested in, contact us and we will help you.

Welcome to apply

Complete your application with as much information as you can, and send it to us at locations@sfv.se.

Submitting an application to us is always free of charge. We will assess suitability and availability. When your application is approved, the next step is to write a temporary lease agreement.

Make sure you apply in time. We recommend that you send us your application at least three weeks before the start of the arrangement so that we have time to process your request. If your arrangement takes place during the summer months, we need your application by May 31 at the latest.

SFV rejects applications when there is a risk that the arrangement or product does not live up to the state's value base or that there is a risk of permanent damage to properties, cultural or natural environments.


The fee for the location takes the extent of the arrangement, the purpose, the target group and the location of interest into account. Your application is the basis of the assessment we make and therefore we need your application to present the fee for the inquiry in question.

Events in a public area

Have you applied for a police permit for an event in a public place where SFV is the landowner? Then you need to contact us to get the landowner's permission from us. Complete an application in the same way as above.
