So pleased to meet you.

My name is Ylva Forner and I´m a director and screenwriter, amongst a lot of other things...


I have written and directed five short films all of which have toured the world in festivals. I am now in the pre - production of my first full length feature film “The Schoolmaster Games” funded by the Swedish Film Institute and The Swedish Television.


My strength as a director lies in a very particular, dreamy, overly romantic yet raw visual storytelling combined with a strong knowledge in acting and directing.


I hold a bachelor's degree in directing from Centre D’estudis Cinematogràfics de Catalunya in Barcelona. I lived in Barcelona for seven years, there I also trained to be an actress and worked in front of the camera. I moved back to Stockholm in 2007 where I went to Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts and very soon established myself as an up and coming filmmaker. In 2009 I was awarded the SWEA Los Angeles Film Scholarship, and it led me to live for long periods of time in Los Angeles. That same year I was a part of Berlinale Talent Campus.  


Besides working on establishing myself as a film – and hopefully – Tv series director I´ve worked as a director, producer and creative for several commercial and information films.


I also have extensive experience in production managing and production and have worked as head of production at Sweden´s most renowned radio production company, filt AB, and as a senior producer at the production company Film and Tell.


If you´re interesting in working with me in these fields please visit my LinkedIn profile or download my CV (or of course, just shoot me an e-mail).


Please take a look at my work. I hope you like what you see and get in contact!
