My Skinny Sister is a Swedish coming-of-age drama from first-time director Sanna Lenken. Just as Stella enters the exciting world of adolescence she discovers that her big sister and role model Katja is hiding an eating disorder. A story about jealousy, love and betrayal.

The film won the Crystal Bear at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.

Murray Dibbs, Director of Matchbox Films, said:

"Without Creative Europe we would not be able to release in cinemas due to the high costs involved so we are very grateful for the support and hope it continues over the coming years."
