CPH:FORUM is CPH:DOX’s international financing and co-production event, dedicated to facilitate the development and financing of creative and visually strong film projects.  The next edition takes place 22-23 March 2017.

Submission to CPH:FORUM 2017 is now closed and 30 projects will be selected in January.

During the CPH:FORUM days, top producers and highly acknowledged directors from all over the world will take the stage to pitch their projects to an audience of professionals, including potential co-production partners, financiers and distributors. In 2015 we were very happy to welcome, amongst many others, highly esteemed broadcasters such as ARTE, ZDF, NDR, BBC, DR, film funds from all over Europe as well as Ford Foundation, Tribeca Film Institute, Fondation Cartier, Tate Modern and Sundance Institute.

The projects at CPH:FORUM are presented in the four categories FICTIONONFICTION, CINEMA, F:ACT and ART, aiming to attract professionals from related industries to stimulate new production and financing models. See a full list of the CPH:FORUM 2015 projects here.

Besides project presentations, CPH:FORUM offers tailored one-on-one meetings between the presenting filmmaker teams, financiers and co-production partners. And to top it all off, we are very proud to present the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award of €15,000 for the best pitch.

The event is for CPH:FORUM accredited guests only and annually welcomes around 300 participants.  Join us for two intensive days of networking and doing business!
