The festival follows its tradition of hosting a gala to open the festival, but for the first time ever, CPH:DOX together with Normann Copenhagen, TV2 and Politiken invites you to the Opening Gala at the Royal Theatre’s Old Stage at Kongens Nytorv.

The opening gala this year is dedicated to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. We will screen a new Danish documentary film, produced by TV2, followed by a specially tailored event.

The programme for the Opening Gala has been developed in cooperation with Politiken and TV2. Both media have for a period of two years launched an investigative journalistic initiative that has revealed sexual abuse within the film community.

The doors will open at 18:00 and the film screening will start at 19:00. The event is sold out.
