Agnes grew up in Gothenburg,Sweden. In her youth she spent most of her time practicing music. Her idea was to work with music and/or theatre on stage but when her brother, who is a film director, introduced her to the cinematic world she fell in love with it. At her first shoot, aged 19, she realised that this was the world for her and that the people who work with film were her kind of people. She then studied at a Swedish community college for two years, made a couple of short films as a director but later found her way into producing film. In mid-2016 she applied for Zentropa’s trainee programme and has since been a part of Zentropa Sweden. During her daily work she both assists producer Lizette Jonjic in working with bigger projects, but also produces and co-produces her own projects.
