17.03.2020 |

CPH:DOX, Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival, is one of the biggest documentary film festivals in the world. This year the conference will be live streamed from March 18 to 29.

CPH:DOX presents a program that ranges from the works of major international directors to new talent, from large-scale theatrical releases to film/video works in the field between cinema and visual art. The program goes beyond traditional boundaries between disciplines and media, offering perspectives on creative crossovers between cinema, television and media art.

The festival enters its 17th year with a new record. Of the 65 films in the five competitions, a total of 43 films will be celebrating their world premiere, accompanied by 16 international premieres and 6 European premieres. Following up on the festival’s 50/50 by 2020 gender commitment, no less than 52% of the 65 titles in the competition programme are directed by one or more female directors.

CPH:DOX have decided to cancel all physical events in and outside Copenhagen. This year the conference will be live streamed to all accredited guests as well as the public. Accreditations can be purchased here. An online cinema programme allows the consumers to watch movies online. Among the online programme are films by brand new talents plus the latest films from acclaimed names such as Oscar-winner Alex Gibney, Ai Weiwei, Lauren Greenfield and many more.Also, the films will only be available for viewers in Denmark, as with the regular festival.
