THE MODSTRÖM POWER OF JOY FUND IS A NEWLY FOUNDED PRIZE THAT WILL AWARD A CHOSEN STUDENT 50.000 DKK FOR THEIR CURRENT PRACTICE AND EXPENSES.
Modström wants to fuel the next generation of creatives, working with their practice in one of the creative schools in Denmark. The Power of Joy Fund is a new prize, celebrating upcoming talents, supporting their work, and encouraging them to march to the beat of their own creative drum. Modström wants to celebrate breaking barriers and doing things differently.
Modström is proud to announce the winner of The Power of Joy Fund 2023 is Sif Lina Lambæk.
Sif Lina Lambæk is a film director currently enrolled in the alternative film school Super16, where she is working on her midway film. The project takes place in a dystopian universe where children are the only survivors in a post-apocalyptic universe after the climate crisis has swept all adults from the planet. It digs deep into important issues of climate change, welfare, and mental health. We have chosen Sif for The Power of Joy Fund because of her daringness, curiosity, and desire to create conversations that go far beyond the screen. Her work is political, confrontational, and incredibly beautiful. We hope that the fund would be able to help Sif realize her dream of producing the film and enlighten these issues.
We want to congratulate the other two finalist: Rosa Lois Balle Yahiya and Mette Wille-Jørgensen. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
