20 INTERNATIONAL FILMMAKERS · 10 INTENSIVE WORKSHOP DAYS · 10 ORIGINAL IDEAS TO DEVELOP · 1 YEAR TO TURN THEM INFO FILMS.

CPH:LAB is CPH:DOX’s very own pioneering talent development, training and production program. 

Since 2009 the LAB has established itself as a highly ambitious yet playful laboratory-style talent scheme for international film directors, focusing on:

  • Exploring new, innovative creative processes in development and production.
  • Supporting alternative collaborative partnerships between filmmakers across borders.
  • Encouraging new financing methods and production processes with focus on lowbudget, cross- sector partnerships and market access. 

CPH:LAB encourages creative risk-taking, celebrates raw talent, facilitates collaboration across borders and business sectors and supports frontrunners within the film industry to push the existing boundaries of filmmaking as we know it. 

The results from previous years have been great. Highly innovative lowbudget films have premiered in major A-festivals, won prestigious awards, had successful theatrical releases and been broadcast on television and VOD platforms around the world. 

With such a track record CPH:LAB has already proven that you can build an innovative production culture, encourage an entrepreneurial attitude, create a stimulating and free environment for creative talents – and deliver results at the same time.
