Science Film Forum supports new creative documentary film and new media projects on science and technology.

Society needs science to tackle today’s global challenges and research must be communicated so that its importance to our common reality can be the subject of a democratic dialogue. If there ever was a time when we should strive for this happening, it is now.

In 2017 CPH:DOX established CPH:SCIENCE, uniting film and science through activities for audiences, education and research institutions, as well as for the film industry.

The Science Film Forum is part of CPH:SCIENCE and a brand new international industry platform, seeking to spark new collaboration between filmmakers and scientists and serve as an incubator for creative documentary film and new media projects that can engage a broader audience in science and its impact on society.


Science Film Forum takes place during CPH:DOX, following a full day focusing on the intersection of science and film at our CPH:CONFERENCE and leading up to our well established international financing and co-production event CPH:FORUM. The mainspring is curiosity, the key word is quality and the format is new.


  • a selection of 7 creative documentary film and new media projects on science and technology will be presented to potential financiers, distributors, co-production partners and collaborators.  
  • In a “reverse pitch”, the Science Film Forum also invites 5 selected scientists to present their research to interested film directors and producers, harnessing the deep knowledge existing within International universities and research centres for new powerful documentary films with a potential for social impact.
  • In addition the Science Film Forum will offer tailored match-making in one-to-one meetings as well as more informal networking opportunities.

We are thrilled to announce the selection of the documentary projects below!
