Johan Bodell

Johan Bodell is an award-winning Swedish Director whose ingenuity, positivity, and compelling storytelling have earned him the reputation as a visionary. Throughout the course of his decade-long career, many of his films have been screened at various international film festivals. 


At just 11 years of age, Johan began using his family's old VHS camera to create films of his own, including space-themed short films with his friends. His passion for storytelling stayed with him into adulthood and ultimately culminated into his feature directorial debut entitled “The Cabin” (released in 2018, now available on DVD and all VOD platforms), which was picked up by High Octane Pictures for domestic distribution and international sales representation. A globally-acclaimed critical success, this horror film has already earned its investors back the funds they initially put in. 


This Spielberg-inspired Film Director is eclectic in his creative tastes and masterfully dabbles in the haunting, dramatic, suspenseful, and everything in between. To him, nothing is more rewarding than a lifetime spent directing captivating stories that touch the lives of people from all walks of life.
