A dedicated documentarist since making my first documentary – now hidden from the public in my cellar - in 1977. In 1979 I graduated in Film from the University of Copenhagen. Most of the 1980s I worked in distribution and theatrical release of documentaries. Attended script writing at the Danish Film School in 1988. Worked as Freelance Producer and Production manager up through the 90’s. Organized the film festival Films from the South in 1995-98. Made a desk cross-over in 1998-2002, working as Production Adviser at the Danish Film Institute. Attended EAVE in 1998/99. Since 2000 I have worked as tutor at a large number of workshops and forums around Europe and in the Middle East. In 2002-2008 I was co-owner and producer at Final Cut Productions in Copenhagen where I produced a number of international documentaries. Was board member of EDN from 2005 to 2008, the last year as Chairman. In 2009 I worked as Film Strategic Adviser of the Middle East at International Media Support. Also since 2009 I serve as lead production tutor at Ex Oriente Film Workshop. Since 2011 I work as Head of Studies at EDN.
