Danish regional film fund FilmFyn was established in 2003 and covers the area of Fyn (Funen) in the very heart of Denmark. Owned by seven municipalities, our goal is to create local growth, increased visibility and cultural pride revolving around film and television series.
FilmFyn holds a strong track record of investing in more than 55 successful productions so far, ranging from historic dramas, thrillers and comedies to children’s features and large television series. Many of which have enjoyed great international attention.
The annual budget is €1.7M of which more than €1.3M is invested based on criteria concerning financial spend in our area, the project’s potential to promote Fyn and FilmFyn’s potential for recoupment. There are no fixed application deadlines, and the path from communication to action is fast.
FilmFyn also houses Film Commission Fyn: All-in-one we are a small, efficient and creative film office with strong local support. You also can expect us to guide you to the best locations, people, facilities and resources available for filming in the heart of Denmark. We encourage you to visit either our national website www.filmfyn.dk or our international website www.filmcommissionfyn.com.
