Caroline Cowan is the Inspirer Award winner!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is a moving picture worth? More so how much is it worth for a woman of colour? The award for Inspirer of the Year goes to a successful scriptwriter and director, whose stories for both the big screen and the little screen both affect and effect.

A woman whose filmography includes TV dramas, short films, commercials and music videos. A woman whose integrity and passion for film should serve as an inspiration for other black women to come to the fore, and get behind the lens. With a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Fine Art, and the merit of being the only Swedish film director nominated at the Venice Film festival in 2007.

She is living proof that there is a place for black women in the film and TV industry in Sweden.
