Zentropa was founded in 1992 as a result of the co-operation between director Lars von Trier and producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen in a suburb of Copenhagen, Denmark. Films produced by Zentropa enjoy critical acclaim worldwide and have been rewarded with the most prestigious prizes the festival circuit has to offer, among these The Golden Palm (Dancer in the Dark, 2000) and The Silver Bear (Italian for beginners, 2001). Zentropa’s headquarter "Filmbyen"accommodates a complete film industry: small wooden huts for script writers, complete sets and the department for worldwide marketing and DVD-evaluations. "Klippegangen" is Zentropa’s post production department, enabling the company to edit the produced material directly on site. During the years Zentropa has expanded beyond the limits of Scandinavian territory, successfully establishing several production units in Europe, e.g. in Berlin (Germany), Barcelona (Spain), Rome (Italy), Paris (France) and Helsinki (Finland).
