Andrej Landin

Screenwriter and director Andrej Landin (b. 1987) fell in love with filmmaking as a child and never looked back. His evocative and acclaimed short films have moved audiences around the world and his passion for creating unique and original concepts has always come naturally.

To pursue a career in filmmaking, Landin moved to the US to attend the prestigious Chapman University, Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, where he graduated at the top of his class. His thesis film, Into the Silent Sea (2013), went on to screen at numerous Academy accredited film festivals, where it garnered more than 30 awards, including a student BAFTA for ‘Best Film’. This paved the way for several more acclaimed shorts produced in both Europe and the US.

Landin also has a background in advertising. As a commercial director he gained industry recognition for several commercials, and received a nomination at Cannes Young Directors. But having always dreamed of writing and directing for film and television, Landin decided to further polish his skills as a screenwriter at the renowned Stockholm University of the Arts. He now has several original projects in-development, including a TV series with Kärnfilm.
