SF Studios is a Swedish film production company, distributor (both Swedish and international) and movie theatre chain, currently owned by the Bonnier Group. It was established on 27 December 1919 as Aktiebolaget Svensk Filmindustri (AB Svensk Filmindustri) or Svensk Filmindustri (SF), and adopted its current name in 2016.

It produced most of the films made by Ingmar Bergman, as well as a long list of films by other Swedish filmmakers. The majority of film adaptations of the works by children's author Astrid Lindgren have been produced by SF.

SF also distributes foreign films in the Nordic countries and has deals with Warner Bros., Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and STX Entertainment in the United States and StudioCanal in France.

SF was owned by Hufvudstaden AB (sv) from 1970 until 1973, when it was sold to the newspaper firm Dagens Nyheter. Since 1983 SF has been owned by the Bonnier Group. In 2013, 60% of the cinema division of SF, SF Bio, was sold to the private equity firm Ratos, and since 2017 SF Bio has been owned by AMC Theatres.
