Nordisk Film Production works with some of the most successful and talented producers in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In combination with the strongest administrative competences (Legal, Royalty & Finance), they constitute a strong team across Scandinavia. In total, Nordisk Film Production has 34 employees.

Nordisk Film Production moreover leverages on the competences as a large film studio by being an active co-producer for local and foreign productions. This includes local films such as Christoffer Boes "Sex, Drugs and Taxation" (2013), Erik Clausen's "People Get Eaten" (2015) and"Never Again Tomorrow" (2017) and Lisa Ohlins "Walk With Me" (2016) together with foreign films as James Kent's "Testament of Youth" (2015), Nils Gaup's "The Last King" (2016) and Erik Popper's Oscar nominated "The King's Choice" (2016).

In 2015, Nordisk Film Production launched the talent development initiative Nordisk Film / SPRING with the objective of attracting and retaining the filmmakers of tomorrow in Nordisk Film's Danish division. The ambition is to build a new talent development track in Nordisk Film Production that gets the opportunity to grow mature and form a new generation of filmmakers. Nordisk Film Production's producers and permanent creative collaboration partners are mentors for the young filmmakers in Nordisk Film / SPRING.

As part of the work promoting and developing new talents Nordisk Film moreover supports the alternative Danish film education, Super 16, which is housed in the production settings in Valby.

We wish to provide the best home for both established and new creative talents, whether this is Valby in Copenhagen, Skeppsbron in Stockholm or Nydalen in Norway.
