As part of the overall CPH:DOX mission to advance documentary film as an artform and its place in society, we are taking a special interest in nurturing the coming generations of filmmakers in Denmark and from across the world.
Every year CPH:DOX brings hundreds of international filmmakers, artists, journalists, experts and other professionals to Copenhagen (and online) for the festival in March. With our DOX:ACADEMY initiative we give students from film schools, arts academies and universities the opportunity to make the most of it. Taking part in an experimental “learning lab” they can engage fully in the festival and form new international networks for a future professional career. Our annual pitch event for young Danish talents DR Talent Award gives emerging documentary filmmakers the opportunity to train essential skills when it comes to advancing their projects as part of the industry.
