As 2014 Berlinale and EFM are finishing up this weekend, please take a look below at all the films and fabulous talent in attendance from Sweden. Also, please make sure to save the date for our Scandinavian Oscar Party 2014.
And as today is Valentine’s day, in Sweden; Alla Hjärtans Dag (“All Hearts’ Day”) I am thinking of how lovely it would be to continue celebrate and express love, not just today, but everyday.
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
President of SACC-LA

The animation genius behind the international successes Kung Fu Panda and The Croods
Markus Manninen on Dreamworks’ campus
Markus started working at Dreamworks in 2003 and he has already been part of creating the Oscar winning sensation Kung Fu Panda and The Croods, which is nominated for best animated feature film at the Academy Awards next month. His title, Visual Effects Supervisor, means that he is responsible for pushing the production process forward. During some periods of time he’s in charge of a group of over 300 people which sets high demands on his leadership abilities.
“The fact that I’m Swedish gives me a great advantage as I’m able to integrate Swedish corporate culture into our group. Even if there are hierarchies in Swedish businesses you are usually able to work without feeling the weight of your superiors on your shoulders. Every person in the room gets heard and we make decisions together. This is incredibly important in a creative process”, Markus points out.
Inspired by the campaign Spring140131 and the Swedish National Day of Running February 1st the SACC-LA crew has decided to participate in the LA Big 5K, which is the official warm up race for the ASICS LA Marathon. You are all very welcome to join our 3.1 mile journey through the rolling hills of scenic Elysian Park.
The plan is simple; we all meet up before the race and do a warm up session with the professional “Friskis&Svettis” trainer Carina Guter, directly imported from Stockholm, Sweden. After the race we celebrate our achievement with a small potluck picnic close to Dodger Stadium.
