Cinenord focuses on the development and production of mainstream feature films.
Silje Hopland Eik and Tanya Badendyck met during film studies at college in Lillehamer, and went on to establish the production company Cinenord in 2004. Since then they have produced and co-produced over 20 feature films in collaboration with award-winning directors including Arne Lindtner Næsss, Anne Sewitsky and Gunnar Vikene.
Since its creation the business has developed into a group of companies, with Cinenord Spillefilm the main enterprise. Cinenord Kidstory focuses on movies for children, whilst Cinenord Stockholm is the business’ Swedish base.
In 2009 Cinenord and the Danish production company, Miso Film, undertook a joint venture to form Cinemiso. The company has produced six Varg Veum films, based on Gunnar Staalesen’s best selling crime novels.
