Throughout the 11 days you can watch films and recline on designer sofas when CPH:DOX and Normann Copenhagen invite you to ‘their Social Cinema’ at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

CPH:DOX, the world’s third largest documentary film festival, takes over Copenhagen’s cinemas, cultural centres and venues in late March. This year it will also present a very special cinema experience.

CPH:DOX moves for the first time into a new venue: Kunsthal Charlottenborg, which will be transformed into an international festival mansion with two cinemas, a VR-cinema, exhibitions, talks, visiting directors, debates, concerts and industry events.

And best of all, the art centre’s biggest and most spectacular cinema will be entirely furnished with designer sofas from the main festival sponsor, Normann Copenhagen. Here, more than 250 documentary lovers will be able to settle in during the eleven days of the festival to watch documentaries from around the world.

Social cinema

This new  cinematic experience, the ‘Social Cinema’, encourages laid-back and social film experiences that (quite literally) brings the audience closer together. It will be a cinematic experience quite unlike any other, and also the country’s first social sofa cinema.

This will be the most comfortable and also the most beautiful cinema you will ever get to to sit in. Your only chance to experience it is during CPH:DOX from March 16 to 26 at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s different rooms will get a grand overhaul and will be decorated exclusively with Normann Copenhagen’s stylish furniture, carefully handpicked to match the rooms’ different content. The design process is curated by CPH:DOX’s creative collective, Marie Bruun, Anne Dorthe Vester and Mattia Maso, in close collaboration with designers from Normann Copenhagen, Hans Horneman and Britt Bonnesen. The Art Centre’s largest room, the Social Cinema room, is decorated entirely with Normann Copenhagen ‘Rope’ modular sofas, designed by Hans Hornemann.

The access to Kunsthal Charlottenborg is free during the festival, but you will need to buy a ticket for screenings or to participate in other events during the festival. The film programme for the Social Cinema will be announced in late February.
