ABOUT STEFAN H. LINDÉN
Since age seven film as a profession has been a dream to me, something that since 2010 has come to be a dream come true.
I was born in 1988 and raised in Oskarshamn, Sweden. I started my amateur film career at age 17 when I directed my first short film and later on I decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue studies in Film and Television. I attended Santa Monica College and graduated with an Associate Arts Degree from The Academy of Entertainment Technology. I ended my stay in the US with 2 internships at NBC Universal Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

During my years at SADA I continued to freelance as a line-producer and produced several award-winning Short Films and Short Documentaries. During my final year I interned as a marketing assistant at NORDISK FILM SWEDEN and started the journey of producing my first feature film - THE PINK CLOUD SYNDROME (2018). The film started as a student final exam project and broke new ground the school, since it was and is the first feature film produced as a final project. The film took around 3 years to complete and had its premiere on National Swedish Television on Christmas 2018.
