CPH:DOX has recently announced that we will be moving our dates from November to March – the next edition will be from the 16th – 26th of March 2017. As part of the new launch in March 2017 the existing programme team, Tine Fischer, Niklas Engstrøm and Mads Mikkelsen will strengthen the festival’s focus on new formats, new talents and new types of media collaboration, and Charlotte Cook is perfectly equipped to help achieve these these objectives.
Festival Director Tine Fischer comments:
“We are absolutely thrilled that Charlotte has accepted our invitation to join the programming team. Charlotte is a rare hybrid – deeply involved in visual journalism and the political impact of documentary film but also highly engaged, aware and supportive of the artistic and formally inventive documentary scene. Her long experience as film curator, most importantly from Hot Docs and her recent move into new media platforms and new hybrid film formats is a dream ressource for us to engage with. On top she is great company and a long time friend and collaborator. We feel honored and look forward to working with her.”
Charlotte Cook on her decision to join:
“It’s a huge honour to be joining the CPH:DOX programming team. The festival has always been one of my absolute favourites, and I have long admired their bold and highly innovative programming. It’s a dream come true to be part of this team, and to help continue their legacy of presenting and supporting the most creative, formally inventive and powerful filmmaking.”
