In 2004 the old air defence halls in the military area in Ystad was converted into a fantastic film studio. The first film to be shot in the studio was Pernilla August's directing debut with the short film "Blindgånare" ("The Dud Bomb"). Since then several films and tv-series have been made in the 3,500 square metre building, including the popular tv-series "The Bridge" and the detective films about Kurt Wallander.
The building includes two seperate studio halls and offers all necessary services for productions: facilities for make up, dressing rooms, costumes, workshops and production offices.
In 2018 the film museum Cineteket and Ystad Studios Film Camp merged to create Ystad Studios Visitor Center. An experience centre honouring the different productions made in the studio. Visitors get a chance to go behind the scenes and step directly into inspirational film environments, learn about the process of creating films, try out costumes and have a go at trick filming. There are also guided walks, seminars, workshops and a lot of fun activities for children and youngsters.
