Frederik Louis Hviid
WINNER at YDA // gold FOR 'HALFMAN'.
Frederik Louis Hviid graduated from the Danish Film School, Super16 with his wonderfully clever and funny, Halfman. The Danish Press wrote: "Frederik is a talent to keep an eye on" when he graduated. Born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, he began his career at Zentropa Productions, where he studied the craft of filmmaking from some of the most talented film people in the industry. Always having had a desire for taking a new genre-oriented type of film to the Danish cinemas, he ventured out into writing and directing the first sincere heist-film being made on danish territory, so far: KING. Combining visual beauty with explosive rawness, KING was nominated at Cannes, Young Directors Award ’16. His music video, “Novembervej” from the popular duo "NIK&JAY" was awarded Best Performance at The Nordic Music Video Awards ’15 while his music video BITTER received a shortlist at Nordic Music Video Awards ’16. Frederik believes that creative sparks and inspiring thoughts start from setting up boundaries, while creating an artistic environment outside of our comfort zone which we often see in his work.
He recently got funding for his first feature film to be shot in Denmark in 2018.
