Selected for the “Uppsala Talent Days”!

This is so surprising that I have to pinch myself a little to believe it!

After having been selected with my miniseries project “Klara” for the “Bergman Talent Lab” last summer, I am now again selected for the other really prestigious budding talent event that takes place every end of October during the Uppsala Short Film Festival!

I will be attending the festival with other eight selected talents for the Uppsala Talangdagar, and I am so thrilled! Party time, yay!

“The Wedding Cake” at LiberAzioni Film Festival!

Pride and joy for this precious festival selection! Tonight, at the Cinema Massimo in Turin The Wedding Cake  will be competing at one of the most socially important festivals I have ever been to… The LiberAzioni is not just about films, but about a possibility of hope, future, belonging. I could not be happier today, and it surely shows on my face here, struggling with my strong emotions!

“Dignity” at the Bright Future Independent Film Festival!

It’s been quite a while since I enrolled my short film documentary Dignity to a film festival, but someone suggested me the Bright Future Independent Film Festival here in my hometown Göteborg and I gladly submitted it: I am so happy my short has been selected! This is its 62nd festival screening!

The festival will take place both online (2-10 October) and in two amazing venues here in Göteborg, the “Världskulturmuseet – The World Culture Museum” on the 8th of October, and the Röhsska Museum on the 10th of October. Not sure if Dignity will make it for the live screenings, but I will let you guys know about the schedule in this case!

The Wedding Cake winner of Best Editing Award at NIFF!

What a blast! The editor of The Wedding Cake, Mikael Moiner, won the prize for “Best Editing Award” at the lovely Noto International Film Festival, Sicily. The statuette is on its way, both Mikael and I will show it with pride as soon as received!

The ceremony can be watched on Facebook at this link, the part that involves us starts at around 8:24, and both Mikael and I are proud about the motivation of the jury (which included stellar film experts, among them Steve Della Casa): “An extraordinary visual and audio montage made of frequent cuts and flash images that gives body and expressive quality to the voiceover story, offering a luminous film version of a desperate life.” The president of the jury, Liotta, also mentioned the high quality and the technical maturity of this work. Nice!
