Three Questions to Festival Producer Ylva Skarsgård

In 2023 we welcome Ylva Skarsgård as our new Festival Producer. She is taking the reins of our 34th edition of Nordisk Panorama Film Festival.

Hi Ylva, and welcome to Nordisk Panorama! How have the first few weeks been?
– I have had such a great welcome from the team. They are very generous with sharing their knowledge and I’m super excited to be a part of the short and documentary film world.

What’s your professional background?
– Most recently I’ve been working at the regional music institution Musik i Syd in Skåne, Sweden, where I’ve been involved in music festivals. Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival has given me great experience of how to organise a festival.

Is there a specific part of your new role that you feel extra passionate about?
– Connecting with people! I love working in a team. I really look forward to getting to know the industry and meeting the audience in Malmö. Film brings people together!
