Freshteh joins Park Village for UK representation
Production company expands roster with the signing of Iranian-Swedish filmmaker Freshteh
Park Village has announced a new addition to its roste with Freshteh joining the London-based production company for UK representation.
Born in Iran and raised in Sweden, Freshteh has directed commercials and creative content for brands such as & Other Stories, Reschia, O’Neill, Plan International and Ellos. After completing her MA in Film at Sydney College of Arts, Freshteh expanded her creative repertoire as a producer at MTV, as a choreographer and as a casting director for features, series, and commercials. Equipped with over a decade of experience in the industry, Freshteh’s films demonstrate a keen eye for capturing human emotions and an incisive docu-poetic style. A filmmaker of contrasts, she excels at enriching the simplest of topics with her unique blend of mystique and rebellious playfulness.
As well as being an accomplished filmmaker, Freshteh is a dedicated surfer who globetrots the world exploring the edges of human differences and cultures. In her long form documentary feature debut, she uses surfing as a symbol and tool for women’s liberation as she returns to Iran for the first time in 30 years. A sharp insider and influencer in the Stockholm music scene, Freshteh is a talented and active DJ who is committed to bringing an eclectic mix of music from all over the world to Stockholm.
“I felt an instant connection with the team at Park Village,’ said Freshteh. “It seems like the perfect partnership for me to break new grounds and grow with. Their sharp approach towards my vision as a director stuck out in the midst of all other production companies I was talking to in the UK. And of course, their cleverly curated roster which I’m proud to join. Not to mention their “We don’t work with assholes” approach which to me feels very right!”
