About Theo Lindberg

Theo Lindberg is the first trans person to be a board member of WIFT Sweden. He started an international network for trans/non-binary people called Trans & Nonbinary Film Network. Theo also organised and launched a campaign called 10% for 50/50, where WIFT in collaboration with Chimney started an initiative to give film productions with representation (in front of the camera and behind it) a discount at companies working with film productions. Additionally, Theo has volunteered at the Sundance Film Festival several years during his time at SFSU. He has worked in the film industry since his graduation from film school in 2003. He is also a parent, cat owner, space nerd, and his love affair with films started with the purchase of a VHS-machine in the 80s.
