For the fourth year running, as a part of CPH:FORUM, we are presenting CPH:WIP, a curated collection of 6 Nordic works in progress from high-profile Nordic producers and directors looking for gap financing or a launch pad for further distribution.

The titles are curated in collaboration with the Nordic film institutes and reflect CPH:DOX’s commitment to strong documentary films from the Nordic region also expressed in the festival’s NORDIC:DOX Award. In an intimate setting, each presenting team will show longer scenes from their upcoming documentary films to a dedicated audience.


The CPH:WIP project presentations CPH:FORUM is primarily for producers and directors with selected projects and CPH:FORUM accredited guests. Seats are limited seats and are open to buyers, sales agents and festival programmers.

Besides project presentations, CPH:WiP offers tailored one-to-one meetings between the presenting filmmaker teams, interested financiers and co-production partners, in addition to a number of more informal networking events and dinners.
