While you are likely considering shooting in Fyn, Film Commission Fyn would also like to direct your attention to other national funding opportunities within Denmark:
The Danish Film Institute (DFI)
The Danish Film Institute can award subsidies to the co-production of feature films and short and documentary films that have a non-Danish delegate producer. The purpose of subsidizing co-productions is to strengthen partnerships between Danish and international producers and to develop skills in the Danish film industry. Furthermore, the Danish Film Institute wishes to support the films' prospects of raising international financing and "travelling" across borders. For more information and upcoming application deadlines on minor coproductions please visit DFI's own pages:
Minor coproductions feature films

FilmFyn has collaborated with several major Danish production companies, most of whom are engaging in international co-productions:
More than 80 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.
Film Commission Fyn is happy to point your production in the right direction and to welcome your crew on recce to Fyn. Knowing the importance of connecting with local location scouts and managers, we have compiled a brief list of experienced contacts for you.
FilmFyn is a small regional film fund with a yearly budget of approx. €2.5 mio of which more than €2.0 mio is invested in feature films and TV-series shot on location in our area. We are involved in several international films - from the development stage and onwards and work closely with other Danish and international partners.
