Kristoffer Malmsten

    As a songwriter Kristoffer Malmsten (b. 1983) developed a unique artistic expression early on, evident in hit ballads like Klassfoto (2006) and Ey Shuno (2010). Malmsten’s songs hold both light and darkness, expressing an ongoing dialogue between those who survive and those who perish.

    A recurring motif in Malmsten’s works has been his upbringing in Aspudden, a place that is neither the inner city nor the suburb. Malmsten himself has similarly refused to define himself as belonging to any one group or class, drawing instead on the richness of language and nuance that all parts of society offer.

    In 2015, Malmsten graduated from Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. He has since been working on international co-productions, including Midnight Sun (2016), A Storm Blew in from Paradise and Hassel (2017).

    Malmsten’s thesis film Francis (2015) was one of the finalists in the running for the prestigious Student Academy Award. Francis is a heart-rending story portraying migrant labour in modern-day Sweden.

    Currently, Malmsten is working on the Black Spark/Nordisk Film/Lumiére co-production God Calls Me God.
