    Anders Weidemann wins the SF Bio Children’s Film Grant

    Anders Weidemann has been chosen as a recipient of this year’s SF Bio Children’s Film Grant for Monky, a moving and action-packed children’s film set to premiere in Sweden on December 22nd. The film is based on Weidemann’s original idea, and he has also written the script. The other two recipients of the grant are Patrick Ryborn and Maria Blom, producer and director of the film, respectively.

    The SF Bio Children’s Film Grant is part of SF Bio’s (Sweden’s largest cinema chain) initiative to promote Swedish children’s cinema. The grant will be handed out during BUFF, the International Children and Young People’s Film Festival, in Malmö in March, 2018.

    The jury motivates their choice of winners with the following:

    “During the process of selecting this year’s winner, there was one movie that stood out and caught the jury’s interest early on – a film that is at heart a serious original story, but at the same time has a wide audience appeal and high creative ambitions. The film is an excellent example of how an idea is born, and is made into reality through common efforts, where the result has the potential to be the big, heart-warming family film of this holiday season. The jury has therefore decided that the grant will be divided equally between three recipients. The SF Bio Children’s Film Grant of 100.000 kronor is awarded to the creative triumvirate behind the film Monky: screenwriter Anders Weidemann, producer Patrick Ryborn, and director Maria Blom.”

    Trailer premiere of Anders Weidemann’s upcoming film ‘Monky’
