Nimbus Film was founded in 1993 by Birgitte Hald and Bo Ehrhardt – both producer graduates from The National Danish Film School.
Nimbus Film was behind the new wave in Danish film in the 1990s and have remained an innovative and active production company ever since, with at least a handful of films and co-productions every year.
All Nimbus Film productions are created in close collaboration between producers, screenwriters and directors and we aim to make entertaining films that are also thought provoking. Our producer team is: Birgitte Hald, Bo Ehrhardt, Lars Bredo Rahbek, Jonas Frederiksen &Lea Løbger.
Currently we are in production with the second film in the ANTBOY universe and developing the third season of the tv smash-hit series THE BRIDGE. Both are examples of projects, which in each their own way, attempt to break new ground and in recognition of this have received international accolades. Soon you can watch SATISFACTION 1720 in a cinema near you.
In addition, our back catalogue today consists of more than fifty feature films, including internationally recognised milestones such as THE CELEBRATION (Special Jury Prize in Cannes etc.) as well as MIFUNE and A SOAP (both winners of The Silver Bear in Berlin). We also have a number of audience successes behind us, including KING’S GAME, WHAT GOES AROUND and FLAME & CITRON. You can see a list of all our productions here, as well as links to where you can watch them.
Nimbus Film is located on Frederiksberg in “The Blue Villa” and employs approximately 15-20 permanent staff. We are always interested in new talent and ideas for film productions, so for more information on how to contact us, please see below.
Through our trainee program SCOOTER, we continually educate new aspiring producers, just as we through the talent program TALENT DATING attempt to match experienced directors with new writers and stories. Furthermore, we employ interns from both universities and job centres, just as the short film medium is used to teach young talents the routine, which helps secure that new talent continues to thrive in Danish cinema.
Nimbus Film is an independent production company, which in 1993 was established on Nørrebro in Copenhagen. Having been located for a number of years in Filmbyen Avedøre, Nimbus Film is once again to be found in the Inner Copenhagen, now with permanent address in a blue villa on Hauchsvej 17, Frederiksberg.
In 1995, Lars von Trier, Thomas Vinterberg, Søren Kragh-Jacbosen, and Kristian Levring wrote Dogma95. See certificate (http://www.dogme95.dk/). The Danish New Wave focused on story and acting, and helped put Danish cinema on the world map. Nimbus Film has produced four Dogma Films: FESTEN, MIFUNE, KIRA’S REASON – A LOVE STORY, and OLD, NEW, BORROWED AND BLUE.
We have a two-year trainee service for assistants to the producers (the Scooter programme).
Each semester, we offer internships to students in different branches of film production, such as assistant to producers, reader, multimedia assistant. Company internships are offered according to agreements with job centres. Unfortunately, we do not offer apprenticeships or work experience to students at primary schools.
Danish cinema is in need of plenty of new film talent. At Nimbus film, we endeavour to consider all unsolicited material we receive. Call us for more information.
