Nina Holmgren is an award-winning filmmaker based in Copenhagen.
With a background in fine art, she is not afraid to mix worlds or art forms in one singular piece, whether it’s working in film, visuals or with sound.
Her work is contemporary, with strong ties to the fashion world. She has a remarkable eye combining storytelling and aesthetic expression in her work to create her own heightened surreality.
In a short amount of time, Nina has established herself as a powerful new voice in filmmaking, winning D&AD’s Best New Director in 2020 and AICP’s Best Visual Style in 2020.
She received international acclaim with her first film CLUB 99.7, starring her 99-year old grandfather, for streetwear brand Le Fix. The film premiered exclusively on NOWNESS and became their most watched film of the year, winning best Branded Content at The One Show, and two nominations at Cannes Lions.
The Danish filmmaker’s short film “I Want You to Panic” commissioned by NOWNESS, an artistic exploration of people’s indifference towards the climate crisis, led her to win Gold at the Young Directors Awards at Cannes Lions.
Nina’s latest video “Intruded” for Justine Skye guest-starring Bella Hadid, Timbaland and Lil’ Yachty is a meticulously crafted and nuanced commentary on communication through screens in the age of social media.
