Pelle Nilsson is Founder and CEO of global production company BRF. Ever since opening the company’s doors in 1995, Pelle has been dedicated to pushing all kinds of filmmaking, whether it’s a commercial or a feature film, and has always been inspired by new ways of storytelling and trying new formats on behalf of clients. Nearly two decades later, this still rings true. In the last year, the shop, which rebranded from B-Reel Films to BRF in January, has produced more than 100 commercials, branded content and long form entertainment projects, including an international feature film, with Pelle at the helm. Most recently, BRF announced that it’s expanding its entertainment division by bringing on the company’s first Head of Original Content in the U.S. Not to mention, BRF has a number of high-profile entertainment projects and theatrical premieres in the works including “Euphoria,” a feature film starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl, Jason Bourne), Eva Green (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 300: Rise of an Empire) and Charlotte Rampling (Dexter, The Forbidden Room), which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Additionally, BRF is in pre-production on “Midsummer,” a psychological horror film, written and directed by Ari Aster; the second season of “Before We Die,” a record-breaking Scandi Noir TV series; and features from fast-rising and acclaimed directors such as Anna Odell and Peter Grōnlund. Other projects include documentaries on professional snowboarder Shaun White and the author behind the “Millennium Trilogy,” which includes “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Stieg Larsson.
