ANOTHER ICELANDIC SIGNING FOR TANTRUM
11 November 2021

Following the success they've had with Icelandic directing team Samuel and Gunnar, London film production company tantrum have turned once again to the small island nation for their next signing… award-winning director Thora Hilmarsdottir.

A successful promo and commercials director who studied at Central St Martin's in London as well as the European Film College in Denmark, Thora made her debut in 2014 with Sub Rosa, a short film which went on to pick up awards at the San Diego film Festival and the Reykjavík International Film Festival.

Her latest short film is Frelsun (Salvation) which - as you can see from the trailer below - is a classic slice of stylish Nordic noir. It too has been nominated for awards and has been seen at more than fifty film festivals around the world.



tantrum is a company that carefully curates its roster, and they err on the side of caution when it comes to adding new directors so the expression of excitement on their press release is one that we're inclined to believe.

You can take a look at more of Thora's work at tantrum's webiste: https://www.tantrum.tv/directors/thora/ and then contact Stuart Wrigglesworth on 020 7439 9105 or via email using stuart@tantrum.tv
