Crone Film

Crone Film was established in 1973 by producer Nina Crone and her then husband Erik Crone, who left the company in 1976. The company emerged after the Danish Film Institute's Film Commissioner Programme from 1972, which offered an opportunity for artistic valuable film to receive funding from the state.

Through the 1970s Crone Film was behind some of the period's notable Danish films, including "Havoc" (Ole Roos, 1977), the adaptation of the iconic Danish author Tom Kristensen's novel by the same name. The company has given multiple promising directors an opportunity to create their first feature film, including Susanne Bier with "Freud Leaving Home" (1991). Since the 1980s Crone Film's productions have been generally focused on children's films and is behind Oscar- and Cannes winning director Bille August's "Buster's World" (1984) and the animated films "Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms" (Thomas Borch Nielsen, 2008), "Freddy Frogface" (Peter Dodd, 2011) and "Jelly T" (Michael Hegner, 2012).
