Film Tourism - New Opportunities for Danish Tourism

A Film Tourism study has been published by FilmFyn and Tietgen Business College as part of North Sea Screen Partners. The study explores the future of film tourism in Denmark, following the success of Academy-award winning 'In A Better World' directed by Susanne Bier, which was filmed in Fyn, Denmark and was co-supported by FilmFyn.

As well as the very successful 'In A Better World', seven other Danish films have also won Academy Awards, including 'Babette’s Feast' by Gabriel Axel (1987, Best Foreign Film), 'This Charming Man' directed by Martin Strange-Hansen (2002, Best Short Film), and 
'The New Tenants' by Joachim Backog (2009, Best Short Film).
“In a Better World” by Susanne Bier (2010, Best Foreign Film)

The study explores the potential of film to strengthen the Dansih tourist industry and further
promote Denmark as a place worth visiting. The study also references the film tourism success of New Zealand as the universe of “Lord of the Rings”, England as the home of Harry Potter and Ystad's success through 'Wallander'.
