“The Factory idea is all about creating a creative space for new director’s talent, focusing on their creating a story, writing and filming it – while learning something essential and universal about collaboration with other talent from all over the world in the process”, says producer Helene Granqvist. “Nordic Factory has been a tremendous success for all involved, and we have witnessed the creation of four personal contemporary films, showcasing the human intensity of a young Kieslowski or Bergman in comparison,” adds the project’s other producer, Valeria Richter.

Nordic Factory 2014 is a collaboration between Dodream, Pebble and the Directors’ Fortnight/ Cannes Film Festival, supported by New Danish Screen/The Danish Film Institute, The Finnish Film Foundation and is produced by Valeria Richter and Helene Granqvist, while Copenhagen Film Fund, Mainstream, Red Rental, Larsen VFX and FilmGEAR are coproducers and essential, active local co-investors in the project.
