JONAS ARNBY is a visionary filmmaker that is able to seamlessly blend both genre and art; creating arrestingly original stories for the medium. Born in Copenhagen, Jonas graduated from the alternative Danish film school, Super16, and attended the London School of Media. Jonas’ first feature film, WHEN ANIMALS DREAM, starring Lars Mikkelsen, Jakob Oftebro and Sonja Richter, was a breakout hit on the international festival circuit. In 2014, it was selected for Cannes’ Critics Week and after thirty plus festival runs, it was nominated for eleven Danish Film Academy Robert Awards and sold to several territories around the world, including to Radius for the US.
Currently, Jonas is in post on his highly anticipated second film, SUICIDE TOURIST, starring Game of Thrones standout, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Sweden’s Tuva Novotny, leading a stellar ensemble of international actors.
