Mina, filmmaker, Northern Wave International Film Festival

Mina Juni Stenebråten – NORWAY

I’m 29 year old screenwriter, living and working in Oslo. My passion is stories for children, mainly animation and fantasy, but I love to work in every genre and format. I got my education in Screenwriting from Westerdals Oslo ACT in 2015-2018. Since my education I have worked in short films, commercials, feature projects and tv-series in different genres. My first finished project is a animated short film. The story is an adaption of Astrid Lindgren’s  “Tomten og Reven”, produced by Qvisten Animation, that will premiere this coming Christmas. My biggest inspirations for children stories are J. K. Rowling, Roald Dahl and Astrid Lindgren. Their ability to find happiness in the darkest places, is for me, the truest form for magic.
