The Production of Vinterviken 2021 started in Stockholm, Sweden, last year in April. The Swedish language film is co-produced by Filmlance, Netflix, and Sveriges Television and is a modern adaptation of Mats Wahl's acclaimed novel Vinterviken.
Vinterviken 2021 is produced by Filmlance International, part of Banijay, with Teresa Alldén as producer and Alexis Almström as director. Dunja Vujovic has penned the script. The three of them have also collaborated previously on Top Dog, a TV series based on the Jens Lapidus trilogy.
At the time of announcing the movie, director Alexis Almström, said, “I will never forget when I watched Vinterviken as a teenager in the 90s. Since then, a lot has happened, and not all of it has been for the better. Young people, regardless of their background, are increasingly feeling hopeless. As a result, I'm thrilled to bring this positive story about young loves breaking down social barriers to the Netflix audience globally.”
