More than 35 municipalities will be waiving the CPH:DOX flag when one of the world’s largest documentary film festivals spreads its wings across the country this March. The ticket sales for DOX:ON:TOUR are now open.
For the last two years, CPH:DOX has taken over cultural organisations around Zealand with their project DOX:ON:TOUR, featuring new eye-opening documentary films and presentations, debates and events.
In the project’s first year CPH:DOX has screened documentaries in cooperation with Kultur Metropol in the Capital Region, and in 2015 the project expanded to cover the region of Zealand. Just like a good documentary film, the festival broadens its horizons and takes a trip across Kattegat to come to Northern Jutland for the first time with support from Region Nordjylland og Kulturregionen Vadehavet.
More than 35 municipalities will take part in the project, which means more than 100 screenings across the country – a record number!
Smoky noir, political scandals, cassette tapes and Cold War espionage
With DOX:ON:TOUR the festival aims to focus on current themes and generate debate and discussion among the audience in close cooperation with the local screening locations and cultural organisations. In connection with the films, there will be presentations, debates and events with figures from within and outside the municipality. This way, the municipalities play an important part in the festival, creating events and activities across the different regions. This year, the festival will visit cinemas, newly opened theatres, student houses, aquaria, colleges and cultural centres. The cultural institutions of the municipalities have been involved in the selection of the films and preparation of the events, which lead to a brand and diverse film programme.
The films will take the audience to many different places, including a debate on how we welcome asylum seekers and what the cities of Fjerritslev and Klim have to do with Cold War espionage. You can also follow the whaling community from the Faroe Islands, relax in a smoky 60s jazzclub noir atmosphere, learn more about the truth the government and media are hiding from us, get acquainted with the work of a film score composer, discover the lives of juvenile offenders in Norway, get nostalgic about cassette tapes and much, much more.
