Thanks Andrea! 10 years of fun and love! You're the best!
After more than 10 years in the organisation, Co-director Andrea Arvidsson has decided to leave Doc Lounge to move forward to new adventures. Her impact on the organisation’s development and the atmosphere at the office has been tremendous and there are no words to describe how much we will miss her strategic and creative mind and her joyful craziness. We thank her from the bottom of our hearts for all dedicated work, the daily horoscope, the 3 o’clock office stretch, the Friday nail bar and her great great passion of bringing world class documentaries to the people. We wish her all the best in the future.
Andrea started out as a volunteer and soon became the project manager of Doc Lounge Malmö. The last 5 years she has been the co-director of the organisation together with Maja Lindquist, focusing on impact, communication and strategies. Maja Lindquist will continue to lead the organisation as the diretcor of the organisation.
”I’ve been with Doc Lounge for more than a decade so this is truly the end of an era! I am so happy to have had the luxury to spend every day working with something as important and exciting and life changing as documentary films.
I started out as a volunteer in 2009. It was love at first sight for sure, I got hooked and basically just never left. Once I finished my education in media and communications I moved on to be the event manager of Doc Lounge Malmö, where I experienced the joy of presenting extraordinary films and talk to super smart guests and artists on stage every week while producing and hosting my own talk show (aka. the Doc Lounge Malmö events). The past five years I’ve spent as head of communication and director of Doc Lounge, on the never ending journey of creating new, groundbreaking ways to distribute, experience and work with documentary films.
Now it’s time to leave, and I feel blessed to have met and worked with such amazing colleagues, filmmakers, artists and partners along the way. As I am now moving on, I’m incredibly excited to see all wonderful things that will happen with Doc Lounge in the future. I might leave the job and the office but my love and support will be with Doc Lounge forever and ever. ”
