Frederik Louis Hviid
Frederik Louis Hviid graduated from the Danish Film School, Super16, with his wonderfully clever and funny, “HALFMAN”. The film received all around critically acclaim in the Danish press, and toured numerous film festivals worldwide. The film won a gold at Young Directors Award in Cannes, got a Staff Pick for Vimeo – and finally received a nomination for the Danish Film Academy Award 2017. Since then, Frederik’s been keeping busy developing his upcoming feature film “Shorta” (2020) while directing the final two episodes of the highly successful danish television show “Follow the Money III”. The show was selected for the 2019 Berlinale, and are currently showing in the US and UKs BBC Four. Frederik believes that creative sparks and inspiring thoughts start from setting up boundaries, while creating an artistic environment outside of our comfort zone, which we often see in his work. In 2015 Frederik was awarded with the Nordic Creative Talent Award for his beneficiary work for “BØRNEFONDEN”. Frederik lives in Copenhagen with his wife and his two year old daughter.
