Theo Wanderydz is a Stockholm-based writer and a graduate of the prestigious National Film & Television in London. His graduate film – SHOAL (directed by Tammes Bernstein) – has competed at dozens of film festivals worldwide and was shortlisted for the BAFTA Student Awards in 2020.

In 2022, Theo debuted with his first Swedish short film In Every Room So Hushed with frequent collaborator Erik Westerström.

His spec feature Goodnight Jonathan circulated around America in 2020 and won best Action/Sci-Fi screenplay in ScriptPipeline’s First Look Competition and became a top contender in the Academy Nicholl Fellowship during the same year.

After moving back to Sweden, Theo worked as a Trainee at Film i Väst and as a Script Editor at Nexiko Drama. He has just finished his time in the writer’s room for a major crime/drama series for Viaplay and an upcoming drama/comedy series for TV4 and Cmore.

Theo is drawn to cinematic, suspenseful stories across several genres (mainly horror) but always with big hearts and more profound questions at the core. He’s determined to tell emotional and enduring stories that audiences want to discuss, dissect and revisit several times after they’ve experienced them.
