We do it because DOX:ACADEMY is the kind of thing we would really have wanted to take part in ourselves.
CPH:DOX brings hundreds of international filmmakers, artists, journalists, experts and other professionals to Copenhagen for the festival in March. DOX:ACADEMY is about making the most of it all, and is dedicated to ambitious students who wish to engage fully in the festival.
We think a festival such as CPH:DOX is an ideal place to let students from different fields, institutions and academic traditions meet and form creative networks. Designed as an experimental “learning lab” in previous years, DOX:ACADEMY has been a highly productive space where students have organised themselves in the network created during the festival, and some have developed cross-disciplinary art and research projects.
The DOX:ACADEMY is open to individuals and groups from schools and universities.
