CPH:DOX annually welcomes delegations of documentary professionals from all around the world enriching our industry programme and benefitting from our specially curated networking events and tailored mentorship programmes.

The programme of each delegation is tailored for the specific needs of its members. Prior to the festival, delegation organisers can choose to offer their delegates individual mentorship and/or peer-to-peer support programme, guiding producers through the CPH:INDUSTRY programme, the international marketplace at large, and connecting them with relevant people and institutions.

Additionally, each delegation receives a number of curated roundtable sessions that connect participating producers with film financiers, broadcasters, sales agents, art curators, galleries, established international producers and impact bodies’ representatives, participating in the Industry programme.

For the 2022 edition, we were proud to welcome no less than eight international delegations with producers and filmmakers from Germany, Italy, Poland, Scotland, United Kingdom, Israel, Egypt and a delegation of Doc Society’s New Perspectives Fund fellows. Find more information about each delegation and their delegates below.

To organise a delegation for CPH:INDUSTRY 2023, taking place during next year’s CPH:DOX festival 15-26 March, 2023, please reach out to ***** the latest by 1 December 2022.

The Doc Society New Perspectives fellowship presents four filmmaking teams with feature length films in production, each embodying a spirit of creative freedom. The fellows were selected for their innovative storytelling ambitions, their exploration of co-creation in the nonfiction space, and their drive to deconstruct our understanding of documentary and rebuild it anew.
