Hjalmar Palmgren has a background as Film Commissioner for documentaries at the Swedish Film Institute, Commissioning editor for doc’s om art and culture at Swedish public service broadcaster SVT and director of film funding at the Swedish Film Institute. Nowadays he spends his days as a lecturer, consultant and tutor in his own company Palmgren Vision and as a documentary producer at the newly established production company Docster.
”Tutoring at B2B doc is a pure joy! There is a lot of talented film makers and a lot of compelling and important stories to be told in the former Soviet republics. Helping to realizing these projects and helping to get them connected with the international industry is a really meaningful and rewarding job. It’s also very inspiring for me as a producer to take part of all those processes.”
