CPH:FORUM began today, and TELTET is already packed with filmmakers with exciting pitches and professionals looking for good ideas.
The industry event is CPH:DOX’s international financing and co-production event, dedicated to facilitate the development and financing of creative and visually strong film projects. Like last year, CPH:FORUM will present an extraordinary line up of international film projects.
What is CPH:FORUM?
On 11 and 12 November top producers and highly acknowledged directors from all over the world will enter the stage to pitch their projects to an audience of professionals. We present new projects from two of Denmark’s best producers; Signe Byrge (behind Oscar nominated ’The Act of Killing’) and Sigrid Dyekjær (behind ’Something Better to Come’ and ’Ai Weiwei – The Fake Case’). Furthermore, we present new projects from other prominent filmmakers such as Jehane Noujaim, Peter Mettler, Lucy Walker og Leonard Retel Helmrich, among top names from the international art scene such as Yael Bartana and the artist couple Verena Paravel & Lucien Castaing-Taylor.
The projects at CPH:FORUM are presented in the four categories FICTIONONFICTION, CINEMA, F:ACT og ART aiming to attract professionals from related industries to stimulate new production and financing models.
Impressive guest list
This year we welcome, amongst many others, highly esteemed broadcasters such as ARTE, ZDF, NDR, BBC, DR, film funds from all over Europe as well as Ford Foundation, Tribeca Film Institute, Fondation Cartier, Tate Modern and Sundance Institute.
