Why Fyn?

More than 75 successful Danish productions have been shot in the island of Fyn - and we’d like to think that it is not just the presence of funding opportunities but the existence of a truly film friendly environment in the spot center of Denmark.

Everything in one place

Fyn is located in the very middle of Denmark with airports to the East and West and a well connected highway and rail-system. Fyn is large enough not to feel like an island, but small enough to give you the feeling of having everything within reach. In Fyn you will find not only a great variety of locations, but also a 600 m2 studio, postproduction houses and a film friendly service industry. 

Easy access 

Permits, people and locations are very approachable. Fyn thrives on great public and political support and pride in the local community in the films shot in our region. Local authorities are embracing the special needs of film productions. Hotels and restaurants understand the needed service level. Extras are easy to find. Compared to larger urban areas, access is often easier and bureaucracy is less. All these high points ultimately allow for tighter production schedules. 

The right focus

Filming in Fyn is a focused experience for most crews. We don’t have bustling cosmopolitan environments, but instead Fyn offers calm surroundings for accommodation and relaxation often close to nature and the sea. When you bring your production here, you will most likely also enjoy the cooperation and investment of regional film fund FilmFyn. With FilmFyn as an investment partner, you will become part of a select range of 4-5 large projects a year and a focused effort to lift the productions along that chose our region.
