Momento Film director Frida Kempff is selected for Stockholm Film Lab, Stockholm International Film Festival’s talent program for young female directors. With support from the Swedish Film Institute, the program seek to encourage and inspire the directors on their way to a continued professional career.
Frida Kempff won the Jury Prize in the official selection in Cannes in 2010 with her short documentary, Bathing Micky. She is currently filming her first feature length film, the documentary Mothers Without Children, following three nurses in downtown Toronto trying to help homeless pregnant women.
Stockholm International Film Festival is the festival in an international comparison that by far, screens the largest number of films made by women. Stockholm Film Lab, where female filmmakers highlighted at an early stage of their film career, is another step in their quest to be at the forefront of the representation of female filmmaking.
