Charlotta Denward New Nordic Head of Production at Svensk

Svensk's films include the hit "Easy Money" crime trilogy.

Denward will head up local production for the Scandinavian giant.

Charlotta Denward has been named the Nordic head of production at Scandinavian
giant Svensk Filmindustri, where she will run the company's local television, film and web-TV operations in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. Denward currently is head of production in Sweden for Svensk.

Earlier this year, Svensk acquired Swedish production company Tre Vanner, becoming one of the largest TV and film shingles in the Nordic region.

Denward will be charged with integrating the Tre Vanner and SF teams, as well as heading up all of Svensk's co-productions with independent producers in the region.

"I am very pleased that Charlotta has agreed to lead the new SF Nordic production organization. It is a very demanding and challenging position, and Charlotta has all the qualifications to make this work,” said Jonas Fors, president and CEO of Svensk Filmindustri.

Denward's appointment follows the announcement earlier this week that veteran producer Peter Possne, head of Svensk-controlled Sonet Film, would be leaving the company.

Together with Tre Vanner, Svensk has a formidable slate of franchises and high-profile projects in the pipeline, including the Easy Money crime trilogy, the final edition of which was released this year; TV crime series the Fjallbacka Murders;  the current box-office hit Jerrymaya’s Detective Agency, the first in a planned franchise; and Heaven on Earth, a sequel to the Oscar-nominated As It Is in Heaven (2004).
