Tord is a screenwriter and director with a passion for strong visual storytelling, that goes beyond the norm for Swedish realism.

Awarded Kristallen for Best children’s program and nominated for Best Storyteller at the RIA-award 2023. Tord is also developing two horror films with the production company Nexiko and a comedy series with SF Studios and feature films for Strive Stories and Unlimited Stories.

The feature was nominated for a total of four Guldbagge and won “Best Sound and Sound Effects”. The film has been sold to over 30 countries by REInvent.

With a background in several award-winning short films, Tord began his professional career creating and directing the classic cult series Den Sista Dokusåpan for MTG Television.
