CPH:DOX – Copenhagen International Documentary Festival – Call for Entry 2023

Dear Asian filmmakers, the CPH:DOX – Copenhagen International Documentary Festival (Denmark) is accepting documentaries (completed after September 1) until December 1, 2022.

About the festival:
“CPH:DOX is working on becoming the best film festival in and for the world. We insist on freeing the transformative potential of art and documentary films. The appealing form of the documentary film allows for the communication of complex issues in an intimate, reflective and profound manner. And no matter whether the topic is political, philosophical, experimental or focused on a narrow section of the world, documentary films expand and question the viewer’s conception of the world.

The festival programme at CPH:DOX ranges from the works of major international directors to new talent, from spectacular premieres to experimental film/video works in the field between cinema and visual art. The programme goes beyond the traditional boundaries and offers new perspectives on the intersection between cinema and media art, which has been key to CPH:DOX’ success.”
