Last year we invited Ludwig Göransson for a digital masterclass, and we decided to make this an ongoing event, and this year we are very honored to present a Masterclass with Daniel Espinosa.

Few directors have managed to make as big of an impact on the Swedish film scene and contemporary culture as Daniel Espinosa did with his instant classic Fast Money in 2010. However, this was only the beginning of a prolific international career that’s given us films like Safe House, Child 44 and Life. With his first Marvel production Morbius on the way, Daniel isn’t showing signs of stopping anytime soon. 

In his masterclass, Daniel will give us insight into his journey as an international filmmaker. We will hear more about his creative process and what goes into directing the type of suspenseful action that he does so well. 

We invite you to join us in this intimate discussion with one of Sweden’s most successful international directors. 

You need to RSVP for this masterclass. RSVP will open later in October. 


Scandinavian melancholia is a phenomenon often discussed when it comes to Nordic cinema, yet few creators have managed to capture it as aptly as Joachim Trier. Famous for his psychologically complex and character-driven storytelling through films like Thelma, Louder Than Bombs and The Oslo Trilogy - consisting of films Reprise, Oslo, August 31st and The Worst Person In The World - Joachim has made a name for himself both in the Nordic and international film scene. 

A veteran at Stockholm International Film Festival, Trier receives his third Bronze Horse Awards this year, as well as our Stockholm Visionary Award 2021. 

In his masterclass, moderated by Jon Asp, Joachim will share his experience with narrative filmmaking and directing intellectually captivating, aesthetically beautiful films. He will discuss his creative process and what it takes to create meaningful cinematic art. 

We welcome you to join us for an intimate dialogue with one of Northern Europe’s most renown directors. 

For access to this Masterclass, RSVP is needed. RSVP will open in mid-october.
