  • About Us

    How we work

    Film and Tell is a film company founded by award winning director and producer Oscar Hedin. Today we are a staff of three working full-time with the production and distribution of documentary films. Film and Tell carry out projects that engage, entertain and create food for thought, but perhaps most importantly, films that aim to create positive change - Film for Change.

    The company released its first documentary in 2013, the short documentary Go Straight Home (11')directed by Maud Nycander (Palme) and Iga Mikler (Eating Lunch). 

    We're currently working on a documentary diptych aiming to raise the issue of children living in domestic violence. In March 2015 the first film My life my lesson was released theatrically and it has screened at festivals in Sweden, The Netherlands, Norway and Poland. We're working to secure a release of the second documentary, Say Something, in early 2016.

    At present, Film and Tell has a strong slate of seven projects in development and production.
