    CPH:DOX sets a new record with 110,500 admissions in 2018
    With a total of 110,500 admissions at this year’s festival, CPH:DOX has once again broken its own record. For the first time, the festival went beyond the magic number of 100,000.  Last year, CPH:DOX moved from November to March to be able to continue to develop in the international festival landscape. The decision proved to be right, and is reflected in the festival hitting its audience record in 2018 with a total of 110,500 admissions. Among those, 13,500 children and young people attended the festival’s screenings for middle and high schoolers. As in the previous years, a small number of the tally is made of online viewing: This year, five films from the festival selection were available for streaming online for 48 hours in collaboration with Politiken, and were seen by a total of 10,369 viewers. This year’s total figure of 110,500 marks an increase of 13,000 compared to last year. CPH:DOX has compiled a Top 10 of the films that attracted the largest audience numbers. The film seen by most people this year was Nitesh Anjaan's Danish film 'Dreaming Murakami', followed by Stephen Loveridge's 'Matangi / Maya / M.I.A.' and by Christopher Quinn's adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's 'Eating Animals'. The winner of this year's DOX:AWARD, Swedish film 'The Raft', was also among the 10 most popular films with the audience. With its new spring dates and its atmospheric festival centre in the baroque palace of Kunsthal Charlottenborg, CPH:DOX has cemented its status as one of the world’s leading documentary film festivals for both the public and the industry. The festival attracted over 1,900 international filmmakers and industry members to a programme of more than 200 new films of which 100 celebrated their premiere at CPH:DOX.   Guest stars and highlights Among the absolute highlights of this year’s programme was the London group The xx, who had curated a film programme especially for CPH:DOX and who opened the festival’s first weekend with a big party at Kunsthal Charlottenborg. M.I.A. also made her way to the festival for a special screening of a new film about her and a live talk. Bestselling writer and novelist Jonathan Safran Foer visited the festival in connection to the film ‘Eating Animals’ based on his book. CPH:DOX’s ambition to be the best festival in and for the world manifested itself through its political programme, including the new initiative CPH:Meetings, a series of talks composed of screenings and debates focused on society and topics such as integration, radicalisation and gender roles. The festival’s opening gala took place at the Royal Theatre and was anchored in the #metoo movement, a movement that a number of gender-political films from this year’s programme were dedicated to, as well as live events with the Swedish musician Jenny Wilson. The thematic film and debate programme Justice focused on the rule of law and the fundamental freedoms and institutions that are increasingly under pressure. Parallel to this, an expansive focus on social experiments ran across the programme from the competitions to a retrospective sidebar and the exhibition #WhatIf at the festival center. Last but not least, CPH:DOX has continue to invest intensely in developing its major focus on science in the regular CPH:Science section, with an ambition of becoming leading in the field between research, education, and cinema. CPH:DOX brings together the international film industry CPH:DOX was not only an audience success, but also an international industry event that attracted 1914 industry delegates, including 273 journalists. The financing and co-production platform CPH:FORUM attracts producers, directors and financiers from all over the world to the presentation of over 30 new international projects seeking funding, co-producers and distribution. In parallel with the festival, CPH:MARKET brings together distributors and producers around the sales of new films.

    And the winners of CPH:DOX 2018 are...
    The winners of the 15th edition of CPH:DOX have been announced at the Award Ceremony, taking place at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Friday, the 23rd of March. Films were nominated in six different competitions: Dox:Award, Nordic:Dox Award, F:ACT Award, New:Vision Award, Next:Wave Award and Politiken Audience Award. All winners were selected by a jury, except for the Politiken Audience Award, which has been chosen by the festival audiences. All winners will receive €5.000, except the winner of the Politiken Audience Award, who will receive 50.000DKK. The Award Ceremony takes place in the Social Cinema, presented in collaboration with Normann Copenhagen. Dox:Award Award sponsored by DR Winner: The Raft (Marcus Lindeen, Sweden, Denmark, United States, Germany) The winner of Dox:Award 2018 is ‘The Raft’ by the Swedish director Marcus Lindeen, which tells the story of one of the strangest social experiments of all times - told by those who took part in it. The film held its world premiere at as CPH:DOX on Saturday, the 17th of March. In 1973, five men and six women sailed across the Atlantic on a raft. A social experiment and a scientific study of violence, aggression, sex and group behaviour, conducted by a radical Mexican anthropologist. Everything was filmed and documented in a diary. But theory is one thing, practice is another. And without wanting to reveal too much, the experiment didn't exactly work out as planned. Over 40 years later, Swedish artist and filmmaker Marcus Lindeen brings the crew together again for the first time since the experiment, on a faithful copy of the raft in a film studio, to look back at the three intense months they spent together, isolated and without privacy, on 'The Sex Raft', as the press called it. The film can still be seen on Saturday, the 24th of March, at 14:00 at Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Jury Statement The jury states: “The winner of the DOX:AWARD 2018 is a film about an endless curiosity for the world and the characters who try to survive in it. Its great accomplishment lies in the equal measure of conceptual and emotional elements in the construction, in which feelings and emotions get literally elevated. Two very different forms are intertwined and merge surprisingly well: we see love, companionship and stamina triumph over darker sides of human behavior. We applaud the director for his stamina to continue working on this extensive and complex project until it reached a form where it looks deceptively effortless to the innocent eye. This jury is not innocent but we were nevertheless captivated and very moved by this film. The jury perceives the film as a unique record of time and culture, of aging and ultimately, a monument to the courage of people formerly known as the weaker sex, who embark on a journey into the unknown. We cannot imagine a better metaphor for what it is we’re all trying to do everyday in the documentary field. We’re proud to announce a film that oozes CPH:DOX from all its pores, in its perfect marriage of form and content, of humanity and aesthetics: we’re delighted to announce as the winner of the DOX:AWARD 2018: The Raft, by Marcus Lindeen.” The Dox:Award jury consisted of Barbara Visser, Artist (The Netherlands), Matt Wolf, Filmmaker (United States) Mila Turajlic, Filmmaker (Serbia), Nick Pinkerton, writer and critic (United States), and Caroline Sascha Cogez, Filmmaker and radio host (Denmark). 12 films were nominated in CPH:DOX’s main competition Dox:Award 2018, the festival’s bid for this year’s best international documentary film. Special Mention América (Erick Stoll & Chase Whiteside, USA) INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE The jury gives a Special Mention to ‘América’, a charming, Mexican adventure about three mismatched brothers and their 93-year-old grandmother in a film about family ties, which will evoke both laughter and tears. ‘América’ can still be seen on Saturday, the 24th of March, at 15:15 at Empire. The Dox:Award jury consisted of Barbara Visser, Artist (The Netherlands), Matt Wolf, Filmmaker (United States) Mila Turajlic, Filmmaker (Serbia), Nick Pinkerton, writer and critic (United States), and Caroline Sascha Cogez, Filmmaker and radio host (Denmark). 12 films were nominated in CPH:DOX’s main competition Dox:Award 2018, the festival’s bid for this year’s best international documentary film. Find all the Dox:Award nominees here. Jury Statement The jury states: “A film of tenderness and discretion, and a film that in its discretion never shies away from the ugliness of conflict. A work which, though modest in its scope, discovers indelible images within the small world that it stakes out for itself. A study in sensitivity and emotional intelligence from moment to moment, building to a crescendo of astonishing emotional impact. We are pleased and honored to give the special jury award to América by Erick Stoll and Chase Whiteside.” The Dox:Award jury consisted of Barbara Visser, Artist (The Netherlands), Matt Wolf, Filmmaker (United States) Mila Turajlic, Filmmaker (Serbia), Nick Pinkerton, writer and critic (United States), and Caroline Sascha Cogez, Filmmaker and radio host (Denmark).12 films were nominated in CPH:DOX’s main competition Dox:Award 2018, the festival’s bid for this year’s best international documentary film. F:ACT Award Presented together with IMS and The Danish Union of Journalists Winner: Laila at the Bridge (Elizabeth Mirzaei, Gulistan Mirzaei, Canada, Afghanistan) WORLD PREMIERE The winner of the F:ACT Award is ‘Laila at the Bridge’ by Elizabeth Mirzaei and Gulistan Mirzaei. The film had its world premiere at CPH:DOX on Wednesday, the 21st of March. A powerful film about a woman who is willpower in its purest form. Day after day, the charismatic and strong-willed woman puts on her small ballerina shoes and colourful scarves and heads under the bridge to take them to her private rehab centre, where the aim is to get them out of their addiction with ice-cold baths, communal prayers and motherly reprimands. It is not a miracle factory. Many experience a relapse, and Laila has to struggle with constant financial problems. When the Taliban's arrival in the city scares customers away from the restaurant she is running to finance her centres, things start looking bleak. But Laila threatens corrupt ministers in their marble offices, shoots mafia thugs in her bedroom with a shotgun and with equal measures of care and indignation has a serious word with the opium-addled men under the bridge. ‘Laila at the Bridge’ will be screened on Saturday, the 24th of March, at 12:00 at Charlottenborg. The F:ACT Award jury consisted of Talal Derki, Filmmaker (Syria/Germany), Sawsan Darwaza, Filmmaker and Festival Director (Jordan), Christopher Quinn, Filmmaker, (United States), Finlay Pretsell, Filmmaker (United Kingdom), and Minna Grooss, Filmmaker, writer and journalist, (Denmark). The F:ACT Award is dedicated to auteur filmmaking in the field between research-based, investigative journalism, activism and documentary cinema. All the nominees for F:ACT Award can be found here. Jury Statement The jury states: “In a time where the media leaves societal issues behind after long ages of war documenting the repercussion of conflict this film stands out for its vivid realism, unflinching focus on the fraught reality of a very human story. A story that ultimately we are all collectively responsible for. In Kabul, full of scars and disappointment, we meet a true hero who tries to catch the faded hope in the eyes of thousands of opium addicts living under a bridge. They rather take drugs than eat bread and the price is almost the same, but the consequences unbearable. But Layla Haidary has a mission and she fights every day to save lives without any support from a corrupt government. Breaking rules and social norms of a woman’s place in Afghanistan, Laila remains resilient and brave. Meanwhile, the two directors remain persistent and engaged, carrying the flow of the film with honesty and agility, turning their investigation into an ethical mission despite the danger and risks they undertake to fulfill it. Juxtaposing their hero with a horrid environment and a countless number of people and issues aiming at portraying her as a true archetype, entangled in the world’s tragedy but never shying away from her near constant hope to change her world and the world. The award goes to: ‘Laila at the Bridge’ by Elizabeth Mirzaei and Gulistan Mirzaei.” The F:ACT Award jury consisted of Talal Derki, Filmmaker (Syria/Germany), Sawsan Darwaza, Filmmaker and Festival Director (Jordan), Christopher Quinn, Filmmaker, (United States), Finlay Pretsell, Filmmaker (United Kingdom), and Minna Grooss, Filmmaker, writer and journalist, (Denmark). The F:ACT Award is dedicated to auteur filmmaking in the field between research-based, investigative journalism, activism and documentary cinema. New:Vision Award Winner: Wild Relatives (Jumana Manna, Libanon, Norge) INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE The winner of the New:Vision Award is the film ‘Wild Relatives’ by Jumana Manna. Jumana Manna's original and politically sensitive new work draws lines between three distant spots on the world map: Syria, Lebanon and Svalbard. The lines chart a route and a complex network of relationships. 'Wild Relatives' exposes the exchange of ecological currency between two of the world's grain banks, which are the archives of the smallest basic ingredient of agriculture: Seeds. Biodiversity, conflicts and international politics are parts of a game with perspectives reaching far out into the most distant future, and form the the basis for a humorous and thought-provoking conversation between a priest and a scientist far out in the middle of nowhere. The film can still be seen Saturday, the 24th of March, at 14:00 at Charlottenborg. Jury Statement The jury states: “In a diverse selection of New:Vision-ary works in which Nature is understood both as Presence and the Present that defines us, the New:Vision jury has selected an ambitious work of non-fiction that draws a multi-dimensional Venn Diagram in which disparate geographies, contemporary geo-politics and Agro-Feminism intersects in the form of a cinematic seed pod. For its optimism, empathy, and agility in engaging with the present, the New:Vision Award goes to Wild Relatives.” The New:Vision jury consisted of Merete Jankowski, Artistic Director of Overgaden, (Denmark), Marta Ponsa, Head of Artistic Development and Cultural Action at Jeu de Paume (France), and Ben Russell, Filmmaker, (United Kingdom). The nominated films for New:Vision Award 2018 present groundbreaking experiments in the area between documentary and artistic reflection. Special Mention Translations (Tinne Zenner, Greenland, Canada, Danmark) WORLD PREMIERE The jury gives a Special Mention to ‘Translations’ by Tinne Zenner, a critical and graceful 16mm film in which the vistas of Greenland create a space for free thinking. The film will no longer have screenings during the festival. The New:Vision jury consisted of Merete Jankowski, Artistic Director of Overgaden, (Denmark), Marta Ponsa, Head of Artistic Development and Cultural Action at Jeu de Paume (France), and Ben Russell, Filmmaker, (United Kingdom). The nominated films for New:Vision Award 2018 present groundbreaking experiments in the area between documentary and artistic reflection. Find all the nominated films here. Jury Statement The jury states: “An idea as a symbol, a name as a shape, an image as a surface, a landscape as a waveform: for its formal complexity, material sensibilities and its attention to language as a site of resistance, the special mention of the New:Vision Jury goes to Translations.” The New:Vision jury consisted of Merete Jankowski, Artistic Director of Overgaden, (Denmark), Marta Ponsa, Head of Artistic Development and Cultural Action at Jeu de Paume (France), and Ben Russell, Filmmaker, (United Kingdom). The nominated films for New:Vision Award 2018 present groundbreaking experiments in the area between documentary and artistic reflection. Nordic:Dox Award Winner: Lykkelænder (Lasse Lau, Danmark, Grønland) WORLD PREMIERE The winner of the Nordic:Dox Award is the film ‘Lykkelænder’ by the Danish director Lasse Lau. The film held its world premiere at the festival on Sunday, the 18th of March. The relationship between Greenland and Denmark is full of fantasy and myths. And these are exactly what Danish artist Lasse Lau reflects upon – and in turn documents – in his first feature-length film. But how do you give a form to the Greenlandic experience when you are an outsider yourself? Lau has created a sensitive film about authenticity and recreation by letting both elements become a part of the work, together with his performers. The film will be screened on Sunday, the 25th of March, at 19:00 at Gloria. Jury Statement The jury states: “The Award goes to a film that challenges in both perception of those portrayed and through its form of representation. The winning film reflects upon historical imbalance with charm and playful questioning of those relationships in the present. This new voice presents a polyphonic cinematic topography that travels beyond borders. The Nordic:Dox Award goes to Lykkelænder.” The Nordic:Dox jury consisted of Camilla Magid, Filmmaker, Denmark, Luke Moody, Director of Film Programming at Sheffield Doc/Fest, and Rada Šešiċ, Head of Docs Competition at Sarajevo Film Festival, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Special Mention The Night (Steffan Strandberg, Norway)   The jury gives a Special Mention to the Norwegian film ‘The Night’ by Steffan Strandberg, a beautifully animated and bittersweet film about two brothers and their upbringing with an alcoholic mother and musician father. The Night will be screened on Sunday, the 25th of March, at 21:15 at Gloria. The Nordic:Dox jury consisted of Camilla Magid, Filmmaker, Denmark, Luke Moody, Director of Film Programming at Sheffield Doc/Fest, and Rada Šešiċ, Head of Docs Competition at Sarajevo Film Festival, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Nordic:Dox Award is a selection of the best and brightest in cinema from the Nordic countries. All the nominees for the Nordic:Dox Award can be found here. Jury Statement The jury states: “After seeing a diverse group of Nordic documentaries we decided to give a special mention to a film that opens the audience to a personal story of a tender and vulnerable age and the value of emotional connection. The special mention goes to The Night.” The Nordic:Dox jury consisted of Camilla Magid, Filmmaker, Denmark, Luke Moody, Director of Film Programming at Sheffield Doc/Fest, and Rada Šešiċ, Head of Docs Competition at Sarajevo Film Festival, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Next:Wave Award Presented together with Normann Copenhagen Winner: Beautiful Things (Giorgio Ferrero & Federico Biasin, Italy) The winner of the Next:Wave Award is the film ‘Beautiful Things’ by the Italian directors Giorgio Ferrero & Federico Biasin. If documentary science fiction was a genre – and it is now! – then 'Beautiful Things' is the film that locates the future in the midst of our present age. A machine engineer on a supertanker and a scientist specialising in mathematics and audio studies are two of the human cogs in a bulimic cycle of (over)production and (over)consumption of the material objects that surround us – a cycle we never even think about. A chain with many segments, which the filmmaker duo of Giorgio Ferrero and Federico Biasin brings together in an accomplished audiovisual study of our times, but with room for the human quirks that constitute the grit in the machinery. The film will no longer have screenings at CPH:DOX. Jury Statement The jury states: “The award goes to an original film that marries boldness, style, meaning, precision and surprise: Beautiful Things by Giorgio Ferrero & Federico Biasin.” The Next:Wave Jury consisted of Charlie Lyne, filmmaker (United Kingdom), Olivia Neergaard-Holm, film editor (Denmark), and Boris Mitic, filmmaker & lecturer (Serbia). The Next:Wave Award is dedicated to emerging filmmakers with the courage to take chances. Special Mention Minding the Gap (Bing Liu, USA) Conventional Sins (Anat Yuta Zuria & Shira-Clara Winther, Israel) The jury gives a Special Mention to Minding the Gap (Bing Liu, United States), where three young friends grow up, become young men and make life choices in front of rolling cameras, and Conventional Sins (Anat Yuta Zuria & Shira-Clara Winther, Israel), a Docu-noir about sexual abuse in the ultra-orthodox environment in Jerusalem. ‘Minding the Gap’ will have an extra screening on Monday, the 26th of March, at 19:30 at Empire. ‘Conventional Sins’ will have another screening on Sunday, the 25th of March, at 21:30 at Falkoner Biograf. The Next:Wave Jury consisted of Charlie Lyne, filmmaker (United Kingdom), Olivia Neergaard-Holm, film editor (Denmark), and Boris Mitic, filmmaker & lecturer (Serbia). The Next:Wave Award is dedicated to emerging filmmakers with the courage to take chances. All the nominees for the Next:Wave Award can be found here. Jury Statement The jury states: “Special mention to an introspective film that boldly exposes the scale and the mechanisms of abuse in a community used to silence — Conventional Sins, by Anat Yuta Zruia & Shira Clara Winther, and to an intimate film that glorifies friendship, introspection, resilience, persistence and some really smooth skating moves — Minding the Gap, by Bing Liu.” The Next:Wave Jury consisted of Charlie Lyne, filmmaker (United Kingdom), Olivia Neergaard-Holm, film editor (Denmark), and Boris Mitic, filmmaker & lecturer (Serbia). Politikens Publikumspris Winner: False Confessions (Katrine Philp, Danmark, Germany) The winner of the Politiken Audience Award is ‘False Confessions’ by the director Katrine Philp, a legal thriller about a pro-bono idealist's work for justice in a cynical justice system. The film held its world premiere at the festival on Saturday, the 17th of March. During an interrogation in the United States, it is both legal and commonplace to use special psychological techniques to make the suspect confess. In a closed room, coached interrogators can not only get anyone to confess to anything – they can also make innocent people believe that they have actually committed crimes such as murder and child assault. In New York, the Danish-born defence attorney Jane Fisher-Byrialsen is working to prevent false confessions, so that less people end up in prison for crimes they have not committed. You can still catch the films on Sunday, the 25th of March, at 21:15 at Park Bio and an extra screening on Thursday, the 27th of March at 21:30 at Grand. CPH:DOX and Politiken celebrate freedom of expression with the Politiken Audience Award. The nominated films support the defence of artistic freedom.See the nominees for the Politiken Audience Award here.

    Meet the directors behind DOX:AWARD-nominated 'Welcome to Sodom'
    The Austrian directing duo Florian Weigensamer and Christian Krönes’ film ‘Welcome to Sodom’ will World Premiere at CPH:DOX. It is a dark and sensuous film about a landfill in Ghana, where electronic waste from the West is being dumped and recycled. An unforgettable cinematic experience, where the story is told by the workers themselves. The film is a timeless vision of the apocalypse followed by an extremely urgent reminding call for action to the times we live in right now. What triggered your inspiration to make the documentary? Florian - I was always fascinated by places, which are a world on its own. And the world's largest e-waste dump definitely is such a place. But the inspiration to make the film - I think we made it because it was there! Some films just have to made. No matter what. And especially after meeting the people living on the dump as we were there for research - from there, there was no turning back. How would you describe the work process when shooting the film? Florian - Of course it is not easy to shoot a film on a huge dump. For technical reasons and also because as a white european film team you don't fit in  - you are a strange body in this surprisingly well organized microcosmos. The most interesting moment was after a few weeks on the dump, as we realized that the people there accept us. The moment when they opened up and started to trust us. Then they started to tell their real stories. That was a really fantastic moment to feel accepted there. And I can say that from that point on a kind of friendship with many of them started to grow. What are your thoughts and expectations about the main competition? Florian - It is a great honor for the film and a great deal for us to be nominated for the DOX Award. To be one of only 12 selected films will definitely help our film to find the international audience that it deserves. By being nominated we expect a lot of interesting feedback on our film.

The session takes place at Doc Corner on Sunday May 15 from 14.00-15.30 hrs. By invitation only. Three feature film projects will be presented: On Sceeen Off Record Director: Rami Farah Producers: Signe Byrge Sørensen, Final Cut for Real (Denmark), Lyana Saleh, OSOR (France) Running time: 70 min & 55 min Expected release: Nov. 2017 In September 2012, Yadan crosses the Syrian-Jordanian border on foot, with a hard drive full of dreams and nightmares. Since day one, he has been filming the Syrian uprisings that started in Daraa with four of his friends. The destinies of these five Syrian activists were shaped by the Syrian revolution as it went from being a non-violent movement, to a militarized and an Islamized conflict, to a vicious civil war. They were the local reporters on the ground. We have seen their images on our news programs. This film will go behind the scene and investigate these images and the narratives they became part of on TV-screens in both the Arab world and the West. This film aims to make us rethink their stories and the media machine they became a part of. Amateurs in Space Director: Max Kestner Producer: Sigrid Dyekjær PGA, Danish Documentary (Denmark) Running time: 75+ Expected release: 2016 Sales Agent: Salma Abdalla / Autlook Filmsales Amateurs in Space is the story about two friends, Peter and Kristian, and their shared boyhood dream of traveling into space in their own home-built space rocket.
