Christina Rosendahl

/B. 1971

Director. Born 5/1 1971, Denmark.

Studied Comparative Literary History and Film and Media Studies at the University of Copenhagen and spent a time at the European Film College and the New York Film Academy before graduating from the alternative film School Super16 in 2002.

In 2002, she saw her breakthrough with the highly acclaimed "Stargazer," a documentary about the band Swan Lee featuring her younger sister, Pernille Rosendahl, as lead singer.

Children and youth have been the center of many of Rosendahl's short fiction films. Among them her feature film debut "Triple Dare" (2006), which received international recognition with awards from Trondheim Film Festival and Zlin Int. Film Festival for Children & Youth in 2007 as well as winning a Robert Award for Best Children and Family Film the same year.

Rosendahl's second feature film "The Idealist" (2015) is a political thriller based on true events during the Cold War and won Rosendahl the Best Director Award at Beijing International Film Festival in 2016.

Christina Rosendahl became chairman of the association of Danish Film Directors in 2014 and is an active voice in the film debate, not least on gender issues.
