Durring TIFF (Tromsø International Filmfestival) in January 2018 The Factory earned an award; Skårungen. This award is the North Norwegian Film Center’s debutant award and is given to first time directors and producers who have received funding from them during the previous year.
I’m very honored that they choose me and the producer of the film Tonje Ness Meinhardt as this years debutants. We are very grateful for the award and most of all for the amazing team who stood through cold weather, car trouble and power issues. Without their effort there wouldn’t be a soda factory, a robot or a film.
