Are you passionate about film and documentaries and do you have an interest in using your network to spread the art of documentary? You can still become an ambassador for CPH:DOX 2017 by adopting a film!

As an ambassador for CPH:DOX you commit to doing everything you possibly can to spread the word about your chosen film! For your good and hard work we will reward you with 2 free tickets to your film at the festival in March. These you can use as you please – share them amongst your friends to get as many a possible to see your documentary, or choose a special someone to share the experience with. It’s up to you!

We expect you to commit fully to the task, obviously.

What you need to do is:

  • Share the film on your own Facebook wall and attend CPH:DOX events, both the general ones and the specific ones about your film, and share and like as much as possible to get the word out.
  • Write 1-2 posts about the movie on social media you are using (e.g. posts on Instagram, share the film in relevant groups on Facebook, a tweet etc.)
  • Spread the word about the film verbally in your social circle, e.g. the friend or family member you invite to watch the film
  • And of course you are more than welcome to use your imagination to find other ways to get people interested!

We encourage everyone to apply to be an ambassador, it’s free, it’s fun, and it’s a great way to get involved with the world of documentaries.


You can apply to be an ambassador by writing a short application about yourself and your interest to trine@cphdox.dk, and we will contact you shortly afterwards.

What is it and why are we doing it?

We watch and consider thousands of films every year in order to find and select the films that we think deserve to make it into the cinema. And we believe in every one of them. However, every year, there are some films that are in danger of slipping beneath the radar – and often these are the films we are most passionate about. Therefore, we need you film ambassadors to give some of our films a helping hand, in order for them to reach their audience.
