SF Studios, Scandinavia’s oldest film studio, is set to start introducing concert films to theaters, kicking off with “Hov1 Forever” which follows the popular Swedish band Hov1 across their sold-out summer tour.
Hov1, whose tour spanned 27 cities in Sweden and Norway, was Sweden’s most streamed artist in 2023. Portraying Hov1 members Ludwig Kronstrand, Noel Flike, Dante Lindhe, and Axel Liljefors, the movie will show the band performing their biggest hits on stage and engaging with fans, as well as behind-the-scenes glimpse into their off-stage lives, discussions and music production.
SF Studios will roll out the film in Swedish cinemas between January 4-14 and will be handling distribution across the Nordics.
“’Hov1 Forever’ will be around when we are no longer here. So whatever happens, it makes us Hov1 forever. And we hope it can give our fans as much hope and love as they give us every day. Thank you to everyone who listens, cares, and sings with us at our concerts. This movie belongs to you and you more than us” says Hov1, which produced the concert movie with Henrik Hanson.
The Swedish band broke through in 2017 with its self-titled debut album “Hov1” and went on to release three more chart-topping albums: Gudarna på Västerbron, Vindar på Mars, and Barn av vår tid. All have achieved No. 1 status, winning millions of fans across the Nordics. The band also won seven Rockbjörnen Awards, six P3 Gold awards, three Grammy nominations, and a record number of official number-one singles in Swedish music history.
“We are thrilled to bring one of our most popular bands to the cinema, offering fans a chance to relive this unforgettable concert experience or see it for the first time,” says Iréne Lindblad, CEO of SF Studios.
