CPH:FORUM is CPH:DOX’s international financing and co-production event, dedicated to the
facilitation, development and financing of creative and visually strong film projects.
The projects at CPH:FORUM are divided in the four categories: FICTIONONFICTION, CINEMA, F:ACT and ART and aim to attract professionals from related industries to stimulate new production and financing models.
Besides project presentations, CPH:FORUM offers tailored one-on-one meetings between the presenting filmmaker teams, financiers and co-production partners, networking drinks, dinners and good old fun.
CPH:FORUM is primarily for producers and directors with selected projects and a wide variety of
decision makers, interested in active attendance. A limited number of seats are available to professionals who wish to attend the two-day financing event as observers with priority given to producers. The event welcomes around 350 participants.
We are proud to present the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award of €15,000 for the events best pitch. Furthermore, we are very excited about our continued collaboration with Kickstarter. Once again, Kickstarter will be onboard to provide guidance and promotional support for all film projects that are participating in CPH:FORUM, including campaign strategy and outreach, tailored guidance for specific projects, press support and promotion.
Every year, many successfully pitched projects at CPH:FORUM go on to be selected and awarded at major international film festivals. Previous projects include ‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’ by Sophie Fiennes‘, ‘Casting JonBenet’ by Kitty Green and ‘Strong Island’ by Yance Ford.
