多種語言、政治體系、多元文化、令人印象深刻的風景和人民造就了今天的瑞士。由於其獨特的能力將某些可能的危機化為轉機，因此，瑞士雖然是一個自然資源匱乏的小型內陸國家，但卻擁有穩定的經濟和高品質的生活。幾個世紀以來，瑞士從許多小型自治城鎮的鬆散聯盟，發展成為一個劃分為26個州的聯邦。如今，瑞士是世界最具競爭力的經濟體之一，這要歸功於其高度發達的服務業，並且是世界上最具創新的國家之一。作為一個多元化傳統和文化相互交融的國家，瑞士進一步成為歐洲的中心。城市化的瑞士展現出繁複多元的文化生活，也因此成為當代藝術和文化愛好者的真正天堂。依其規模和人口，瑞士在藝術發展居於領先的地位。電影也不例外，瑞士電影近年經歷前所未有的蓬勃發展。從蜜蜂到乳牛，從喜劇到悲劇 - 現代瑞士電影攝影涵蓋了各式各樣的主題，並且呈現前所未有的繁榮。
Multilingualism, the political system, cultural diversity, impressive landscapes and the people make Switzerland what it is. Thanks to its unique ability to turn what some might view as constraints into opportunities, Switzerland is known to have a stable economy and high quality of life despite being a small, landlocked country with few natural resources. Over many centuries, the country has evolved from a loose alliance of small self-governing towns and states to a fully-fledged federal state of 26 cantons. Today, Switzerland has one of the most competitive economies in the world thanks above all to its highly developed service sector, and is one of the world’s most innovative research nations. As a country where diverse traditions and cultures meet and interact, Switzerland is furthermore a melting-pot in the heart of Europe. Cultural life in cosmopolitan Switzerland displays such enormous variety that in many ways, the country proves to be a real paradise for aficionados of contemporary art and culture. Especially considering its size and population, Switzerland is a leading nation in terms of the arts. Cinema is no exception. The Swiss film scene is flourishing as never before. From bees to cows and from comedies to tragedies – modern-day Swiss cinematography covers a varied range of subjects, and is enjoying an almost unprecedented boom.
