About us

Obel Film and  Thura Film
We are a production company in continuous development, with a broad spectre of productions from adult genrefilms over family entertainment to the strong artistic production. In other words, we both can and want it all, and with a strong launch through our many cinema complexes all over the country, we can ensure all types of films the best possible life from idea to reality.
We are strong in development and have through a network of consultants access to all types of sparring partners necessary in the different levels of the film creation process. On these pages we will give you as audience, partner or creative the possibility of getting acquainted with some of our previous productions, let you know about future initiatives and films, as well as we invite you to come forth with your ideas and wishes for what you would like to make for or see in the cinema.
This homepage is an introduction to Thura Film, but, of course, we will be glad to meet with you here on Bengtasvej 19 if you would like to give us a presentation of an idea, or maybe just want to see where we work.
As the homepage has just recently been revised we will appreciate any comments that will increase the userfriendlyness, just as we welcome wishes and ideas for the content of the homepage, so we can get even better.
