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.
