DOX Film Festival 2017 arrives in Copenhagen
This is one of the coolest events of the year for film buffs - welcome the DOX Film Festival 2017 to Copenhagen!
CPH: DOX, one of the world’s largest and most exciting film festivals dedicated to documentary film-making is NOW taking place in Copenhagen (16-26 March). This public festival is a great place to get comfy in one of the city’s many cinemas and have new films from around the world served up for you! If you feel really adventurous the festival also tours films around the country!
The festival is famous for doing things differently, with themed films screened at special locations; the film Sour Grapes will be shown in a wine cellar!
There are also serious parties planned; one at Bremen celebrates teenage-hood with Girls are Awesome hosting a disco night and the closing party with Vice should not be missed!
CPH: DOX Music
At CPH: DOX music is at the centre of the celebration with 19 live concerts and films about musicians including Iggy Pop and Major Lazer and a unique Cassette Exchange Market all to be part of!
Here you can see the work of well-known directors but also be the first to see the best new emerging talent from around the globe. This awesome event is much more than just watching films, with interactive events, talks by artists, masterclasses and debates too and all of this is open to the public - that means you!
This year a specially created cinema super venue has been built at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, with three brand new cinemas so that you can sample the world of cinema from the comfort of the new Designer Sofa Cinema (you can’t get more hygge than that!) - or get real in the Virtual Reality cinema!
Some of the films in the festival ask serious questions of the modern world and there are themes to some of the films including 'Power to the People' and 'The Future is Not What it Used to Be’.
The Lab project aims to create a platform for meshing film, art and tech to reach new audiences and promote the scope of using different mediums to integrate and present ideas. Check out what's in store at CPH:LAB.
