Nordisk Film has appointed Sveinung Golimo as new head of film production in Norway. He will start his new role in the autumn.
He replaces Aage Aaberge, who has left to become a producer full-time.
Golimo was previously head of department, production and development at the Norwegian Film Institute. He also has extensive experience as a producer, primarily for production company Filmkameratene. His credits as a producer include Max Manus, Trollhunter and The Heavy Water War.
Golimo said: “The Norwegian film and TV business is a melting pot with both high-profile international talent and new up-coming talent. I now look forward to working together with the many experienced and competent people at Nordisk Film to develop new and exciting film and TV projects for local as well as international audiences
Henrik Zein, CEO at Nordisk Film Production, said: “With his extensive network, unique knowledge of the Norwegian film business, and international outlook, he will create further momentum in our Norwegian production company and strengthen the Scandinavian collaboration. At the same time, Aage Aaberge will now be able to dedicate himself 100 per cent to new film and TV projects.”
Nordisk Film is a producer and distributor of films in the Nordic countries, and operates the biggest cinema chain in Denmark and Norway. Nordisk Film productions include Kon-Tiki and 12th Man.
