Thomas Vinterberg Interview (The Hunt)

Thomas Vinterberg

Thomas Vinterberg is a Danish filmmaker who rose to international attention from co-founding the Dogme 95 movement and contributing the first film to follow its rules, The Celebration (1998). His other films include The Biggest Heroes (1996), It’s All About Love (2003), the Lars von Trier penned Dear Wendy (2005), A Man Comes Home (2007) and Submarino (2010).

Thomas premiered his latest film, The Hunt (Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen), at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, where we had the great opportunity to host him at our TIFF studio space, Onsite [at] OCAD U, where we had an early morning chat about The Hunt and almost every other film he’s made… especially It’s All About Love.



This interview is from our extensive 2012 Toronto International Film Festival coverage and the full length interview was released in April 2013.
