Nivi Pedersen (b. 1989) is a Greenlandic filmmaker working from Nuuk, the capital of Greenland:
I grew up in Aasiaat, which is a town of 3.000 people located right at the entrance to the Disco Bay on the West coast of Greenland. I moved to Nuuk in 2012.
Graduating from The European Film College in Denmark in 2017 I returned to Nuuk to pursue a career in film. Wanting to portray different aspects of Greenland and the Greenlandic culture for both a national and an international audience I started Nivaara Films in 2017.
Additionally, I'm studying Greenlandic Language, Literature and Media at the University of Greenland, Ilisimatusarfik, and finished my bachelor degree in the summer of 2018

Film is a mirror of the society in which we live. The logo shows this mirroring and at the same time connotes the indigenous context that is my background in my storytelling.
