Recommendation by
Morten Arnfred 

Award-Winning Film Director 

"After having worked with Ditte Elton as one of the leading characters in the short film 'Sidste Samling', I realized that I was facing a shining talent here. Ditte's authenticity as an actress, but not least Ditte's presence, credibility, handling her lines and perfect timing in the individual scenes were a gift for the film. It is therefore with great pleasure that I give Ditte Elton my warmest recommendation in her further endeavors."
