HEAD OF DEVELOPMENT 

 

Victoria is a Swedish producer, particularly drawn to stories that subvert societal expectations. After studying medicine at Gothenburg University and law at Stockholm University, she left to pursue a career in film, training at the Met Film School and Drama Studio London.

 

Her first short film, as a writer/director/producer, called ANN'S EARRINGS (2014), explored a dysfunctional yet loving mother and teenage daughter relationship. She then co-wrote and produced THE CUNNING STUNT (2015), a horror short for the 48-Hour Film Project, which centres around a female psychopath, flipping the gender stereotypes before KILLING EVE hit television screens. The film picked up the prize for Best Cinematography at the 48 Hour Film Project festival. More recently, Victoria has worked as an assistant director to BAFTA-nominated director David Tucker for a Drama Studio London production of ROSSMORE HALL and as a post production supervisor on the comedy feature LOVE TYPE D (2019).

 

This led to Victoria joining JSB Films as Head of Development, producing shorts with emerging directors, while developing TV and feature projects together.
