Summary
"Switzerland has developed a distinctive yet evident culture over these years, this has been influenced by the neighboring countries and the international sentiment prevailing in Switzerland. The cinema made its debut in Switzerland a few months after the Lumière and Skladanowsky brothers' initial public presentations in Paris and Berlin. Switzerland's Alpine beauty has appeared in innumerable films, but the local film industry is still mostly dominated by foreign productions. The country's cinemas are also among the less well-known in the world, and there isn't much information available in English on its film history. Over the years, many Swiss long or short films and documentaries were shot outside of Switzerland in other nations, and vice versa. These other nations included, without limitation, both Australia and the United States of America, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, France, Japan, Finland, Norway, etc. Switzerland also served as the location for the filming and production of many foreign films"-- Provided by publisher.
