Sweden shines on Sundvall

Fund provides almost a third of $3 mil budget

Swedish director Kjell Sundvall, whose “The Guy in the Grave Next Door” took more than 985,000 admissions domestically, will receive $900,000 in state support for his new feature, “Winners and Losers,” now shooting in Stockholm.

Newcomers Frida Hallgren and Daniel Gustavsson play the leads in the $3 million Filmlance Intl.-Sonet Film production, which Sundvall calls “a complicated love story,” from a script by “Grave” scribe Sara Heldt.

The Swedish Film Institute also has allocated $200,000 for Bo Landin’s feature debut, “Macbeth,” based on the Sami Theaters staging of Shakespeare’s tragedy at the Jukkusjarvi Ice Hotel in Lapland. Lardin directs and produces for Scandinature.

Produced by Anders Birkeland for GF Studios, Carl-Johan Seth’s “For Worse and Much Better” was granted about $65,000, and four documentaries including Jan Troell’s “The Yellow Tag” shared $110,000.
