Scandi Major Svensk Filmindustri Shakes Up Top Management

PARIS — Scandi major Svensk Filmindustri has named two new toppers, Jenny Stjernströmer Björk and Elsa Berg.

Stjernströmer Björk has been appointed chief content officer while Elsa Berg has been tapped executive VP of business operations. Berg will work side by side with Stjernströmer Björk, focusing on the financing of acquisitions and co-productions as well as business development.

The top exec shuffle underscores Svensk Filmindustri’s strategy to expand Nordic co-productions activities, source material and produce more English-language films with high-profile Scandinavian talent.

“To have been part of the very exciting transformation we have implemented within the company the last few years has been very rewarding,” said Stjernströmer Björk. “We have a great team, we have great partners and we have many exciting challenges ahead. I intend to manage the new responsibility with humility, passion and vigor.”

Svensk Filmindustri is currently developing Babak Najafi’s thriller “Horizon Line.” It’s also just signed an output deal with Swedish shingle FLX, the company behind “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared.”

Svensk Filmindustri distributes pics from 20th Century Fox, Warner in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and MGM in the Nordics. It also boasts output deals with indie players such as Studiocanal (France), STX Entertainment (US) and FLX (Sweden).
