WSF Signs Director Jakob Strom

Published 02.13.2020

Washington Square Films has signed Jakob Ström for U.S. representation. A short film, commercial and music video director with decades of industry experience, Jakob Ström’s natural talent for uncovering humanity and genuine emotion across all genres can be seen in his cinematic work for brands including CARE, Suntrust Foundation and LIDL, among others.

His 2015 short film “Dear Daddy” for CARE Norway–an organization advocating for women’s rights across the globe–went viral, taking in over 400 million views worldwide for its raw, harrowing look into the trauma of domestic abuse and sexual assault hiding in plain sight. The short, which was translated into 10 languages, won several international awards, including a Gold and Silver Lion in Cannes, a Grand Prix at the New York Festival, a D&AD White Pencil, a Silver CLIO Award, two Grand Prix Awards and one Gold Award at the CRESTA Awards, one Silver and two Gold Awards at the London International Awards, and one Gold and one Silver Eurobest Award.”
