Movies

Quiet on the set – aaaand: Action!
Films have existed for more than a 100 years and there is still something very special about watching a great movie that can make you laugh or cry, discuss at length, tremble with fear, or simply just give you a chance to do some kissing in the back row.

From the moment an idea for a film is conceived and up until the script is finalized. Through production, marketing and distribution - Egmont is there, all the way.

Egmont is the main film producer in the Nordic countries via the companies Nordisk Film and Zentropa. We produce films for both the national and the international market.

We have been around ever since the early years of film, and have produced our share of classics, some of which have created film history. Among these is the heart-warming dogme 95-film Italian for Beginners, the most watched Danish movie in 2001. The movie In a Better World won an Oscar for best foreign language film in 2011. And let's not forget the unsuccessful but dedicated crimimals portrayed in the classic Danish The Olsen Gang films, which also still warm the hearts of many.

We have a reputation for making high quality films and our aim is to always provide good films to a broad public. We also make low budget films for a smaller audience to ensure new film talent a platform from which they can develop.

We have divisions in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, but we also co-operate with other European partners to create larger international co-productions, such as Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy and Lars von Trier's Melancholia. Besides producing films for cinemas, DVD and TV, we also distribute and market films throughout the Nordic countries.
