Piv Bernth, Head of Drama, DR Fiction, DR Danish Broadcasting is coming to Auckland! We are very excited to have one of the most influential broadcasters in the world coming for a Summit for feature film producers with support from the NZ Film Commission.  While she is here she will be "In Conversation" at a public event organised by Script to Screen.

Save the date now and watch for more detail.

27 October - evening - Auckland.

An Emmy- and BAFTA-winning producer, Bernth is the force behind the phenomenally successful Danish crime series The Killing, which is credited with kicking off the current wave of small-screen Scandinavian noir. After taking over as head of drama at Denmark's leading public broadcaster DR in 2011, she greenlit and executive produced The Bridge, another global hit that has spawned multiple local remakes.  She also greenlit political drama, Borgen, and the latest critically-acclaimed Scandinavian drama The Legacy.
