Isabella Eklöf is a Swedish screenwriter and director known for her incredible candor and grit. Born in Stockholm, Eklöf turned to Copenhagen to attend the Danish Film School. Upon graduating, she received the prestigious Bisballe Award for her film, Notes From Underground.
Eklöf has directed 11 short films. She wrote the screenplay for acclaimed Border that won Un Certain Regard at Cannes Film Festival, before heading on to write and direct her own feature debut, Holiday. Holiday premiered at Sundance Film Festival and is travelling the festival circuit, so far having won the Grand Prix at New Horizons Film Festival.
Eklöf has many stories to tell and will do so with her signature move; to unapologetically expose both the beauty and depravity of human nature with a crisp and intellectual, yet tender, lens.
