For more than a century, the Oresund Region, centering on Copenhagen, has been a center of film production. In fact, back in the day before movies had sound, the film industry accounted for an astonishing 10% of Denmark’s gross domestic product.
In 1948, Laurence Olivier shot his Hamlet movie at Kronborg Castle, Elsinore, and Alfred Hitchcock later located two of his films in Copenhagen, the cold-war thrillers Topaz and Torn Curtain.
In recent years, major film productions, both local and international, featuring major Hollywood stars, have chosen to shoot in the Oresund Region. Among them are several movies that went on to win Oscars.
Many cinema-goers have been astonished by scenes from films such as Bergman´s The Seventh Seal, Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter and Mother of Mine. The locations are just as breathtakingly beautiful, and can be found in Skåne.
Film in Skåne and the regional tourist organisation have created a website where you can see where movies are shot in the region of Southern Sweden.
