Applications are open for established Scotland-based producers and filmmakers to attend CPH:DOX in March 2020 as a funded delegate.
Taking place March 18-29, CPH:DOX (Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival) is one of the leading international documentary film festivals, presenting a programme that ranges from the works of new talent to major international directors, from large-scale theatrical releases to film/video works in the field between cinema and visual art.
Their program goes beyond traditional boundaries between disciplines and media, offering perspectives on creative crossovers between cinema, television and media art.
During the eleven days of the festival, CPH:DOX also presents five whole days of professional seminars, a screening market, and the international financing and co-production event CPH:FORUM and much more.
To be eligible, filmmakers and producers must have a feature project with confirmed funding and should be suitable for the CPH:DOX marketplace:
- Challenging works in the hybrid landscape between fiction and non-fiction;
- High-end theatrical feature-length documentaries with international distribution potential;
- Projects bridging the fields of filmmaking, investigative journalism and activism;
- Film projects positioned in the borderland between art and film and screened both within the institution of cinema and that of visual arts;
