The documentary named “TPB-AFK” is an upcoming video about the world’s largest torrent tracker The Pirate Bay and its Swedish owners. The documentary is scheduled to be released later in 2011, and in order to complete the project, filmmakers have even received the help of the country’s government!


Swedish moviemaker Simon Klose received more than $30,000 from the government of Sweden. The money will be added to another $50,000 donated by peers via a successful Kickstarter project.

Eight years ago three computer addicts launched a new file-sharing service using relatively new BitTorrent protocol, and that was the birth of The Pirate Bay. Thus far, this BitTorrent tracker is still the most popular torrent website ever. However, in less than a decade, Anakata, Brokep and Tiamo, the website founders, somehow turned into Hollywood’s worst nightmare. So a couple of years ago Swedish moviemaker and producer Simon Klose began filming a documentary about the owners of the site, titled “The Pirate Bay – Away From the Keyboard”, which is expected to explain what drove three Swedish guys to mock rights owners, how they dealt with the private investigators, and what made their BitTorrent tracker so special.

The video will include scenes filmed at the 2009 Pirate Bay trial, as well as the 2010 appeal, and also during the months in between.

In order to finish the project, a filmmaker launched a Kickstarter project in 2010, which was quite successful. The original goal of $25,000 was accomplished in just 3 days, and overall the donations totaled to over $50,000.

Thus far, the filming of the video is already completed, and the filmmaker is already working on editing it into the final documentary. In order to help him with these last steps, the local government has chipped in with a $30,000 grant! The grant came from the country’s Arts Grants Committee, which pleased Simon Klose very much. The financial injection will be spent on editing the video with a Danish editor. Along with Klose, 140 more theaters or movie projects people were awarded by the Swedish Ministry of Culture. Meanwhile, Klose strongly believes that if his documentary is able to shed some light on how an open web can benefit musicians, the current Swedish Internet policy can change as well.

The documentary will be released to the public in the coming months, with a copy being available on The Pirate Bay.
