Danish Film Studio to be sold

Fifty-year-old complex offered as going concern

The Danish Film Studio, purchased by the government in 1972, is set to be privatized, it was announced Tuesday.

The complex includes three stages and complete facilities from pre- to post-production, as well as 21 full-time staffers. The Danish Culture Ministry said it will sell the studio as a going concern.

The Danish Film Studio was founded by Lau Lauritzen, of ASA Film, who used it for a series of family pics in the 1950s.

Today it is the headquarters of local production shingles M&M Prods., Regner Grasten Film, Crone Film, Moviefan and Waterfront — and currently the center of production for Grasten Film’s $4.5 million “The Gregersen Family,” based on Christian Kampmann’s novels, helmed by Charlotte Sachs Bostrup.
