WELCOME TO BERGMANCENTER
TREASURE OF EUROPEAN FILM CULTURE
The 2016 season has ended at Bergmancenter. We open again in May 2017!

Located on the island of Fårö, the Bergman Center is a cultural center that focuses on the life and artistic achievements of legendary Swedish director and writer Ingmar Bergman.
At Bergmancenter we have several exhibitions that will take you on a journey through Ingmar Bergman’s work and life on Fårö.
Our renowned permanent exhibition Ingmar Bergman’s Filmic Landscape takes you on a journey through Bergman’s rare and special connection with Fårö, spaning over 40 years of his life and work on the island.
For the 2016 season Bergmancenter opened two new exhibitions:
Behind the Mask – 50 years of Persona, about Ingmar Bergman’s iconic film. An aura of perplexity and awe has surrounded Persona since its release 50 years ago, and no other Bergman film continues to generate such extensive critical and academic attention. Bergmancenter’s exhibition is a celebration of Persona, and an invitation to a journey through Ingmar Bergman’s most daring and enigmatic work.
Sven Nykvist – Seeing the invisible, about the legendary cinematographer who is considered one of the greatest of all times. Nykvist is most known for his long-lasting collaboration with Ingmar Bergman, but made over 120 films, working with world-renowned directors such as Andrei Tarkovsky, Louis Malle, Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. The exhibition displays Sven Nykvist’s private professional objects and a video installation commissioned by the Bergman Center which contains extracts of all of the twenty-four Ingmar Bergman films that Sven Nykvist photographed.
Here you can enjoy a light salad or warm meals, but also good coffee and cakes in a beautiful surrounding. We are open whenever Bergmancenter is!
May 5th through June 15 – Thursday to Sunday, 12pm–4pm
June 16th through August 31 – Everyday except Mondays, 10am-5pm
September 1st through 18th – Thursday to Sunday, 12pm–4pm
Every year in June Bergmancenter organizes a festival called “The Bergman Week.” For a week, Fårö is filled with screenings, performances and lectures related to Bergman’s work as well as the impact of his legacy in modern artists. Activities are both in English and Swedish, and we have guests from all over the world.
