This study investigates the key players and their roles in the network ecology of the Swedish film production. The analysis of the semi-structured interviews and filming site observations highlight the multiple functions of production managers in the case of Swedish filmmaking. First, managers function as investigator of screening trends, fashion and fads. Second, mangers have a bridge builder function building global pipelines in order to find co-production partners. Third, managers have a gatekeeper function as they direct external knowledge sourcing, integrating and diffusing.
