The story of Kärnfilm



Kärnfilm was founded in 2016 as an independent production company in collaboration between producers Martina Stöhr, Petra Jönsson and Daniel Sachs. The company has since produced high-end Film and TV-series for both the Swedish and global market. The vision and core idea of Kärnfilm is to produce contemporary quality feature content that in some way or another comments or reflects on the world around us. Strong and relevant stories, great talent and uncompromised quality — regardless of format — are key for Kärnfilm in all current projects and future endeavors.
