Eventually, I hope that we can associate New Danish Screen synonymous to talent development in the city, "says Filmby Aarhus manager Soren Poulsen.

Aarhus Film Workshop gives young film talents access to professional production equipment and guidance. The new Filmby Aarhus pool will support the basic costs of production that the young talent have access to.
