About CB Sverige AB
Copenhagen Bombay was founded in 2006 by producer Sarita Christensen and film director Anders Morgenthaler.
Their ambition was to create a company with openness and enthusiasm for original stories and new talent, an
innovative creative environment and a positive engagement of new ways of doing business.

Since the beginning in 2006 Copenhagen Bombay has positioned itself first and foremost as a production company

Lindblad (www.imdb.com/name/nm2503512) is located in Stockholm where he is building up an animation studio for
producing Swedish projects and co-producing internationally.

Copenhagen Bombay put a lot of focus on the teamwork and the closeknit teams working together to create
amazing projects. We don’t send projects abroad, but create teams and projects that can be realized in our studios
in Scandinavia. We want to produced locally to have the experience and best people stay here and continue working
with us.
