Filming with DFDS

Filming with DFDS

We work with news crews, television production companies and students to facilitate filming on our routes.

We will not permit filming on board our ships for the following:

  • Corporate productions and advertising
  • Charity films (unless in support of national seafarers charities, the RNLI, the Royal British Legion or regional charities in the areas from which we operate)
  • Reality / talent shows
  • Under no circumstances will we allow you to interview or film our ferry Captains on the bridge of the ship during the crossing

We will not permit filming during our high season months (June, July and August).

Please complete and submit an application form to our Group Communications department at grcom@dfds.com at least one month in advance of your proposed date of travel.

Our Services

Every day we carry passengers and cargo across the Baltic Sea, including routes from Lithuania to Sweden (Klaipeda - Karlshamn), Sweden to Estonia (Kapelskar - Paldiski) and the route connecting Lithuania with North Germany (Klaipeda - Kiel). The Scandinavian route through the Kattegat from Copenhagen to Oslo connects Denmark with Norway.

Filming in the port

Any filming at ports must be approved by the appropriate port authority and will be subject to completion of the port’s safety and security inductions. A minimum of one months' notice for all filming is required by all ports to process your filming request.

Ship Schedules

Every day, DFDS ships sail on routes that serve customers - for this reason, we can't break or change the schedule of the ship to accommodate the filming.
