This year CPH:DOX puts a special focus on alternative formats including the successful podcast Third Ear, live performances by, among others, Michael Madsen from ‘The Visit’, and stories from the real world from C:NTACT and Everyday. 

Third Ear Planetarium 

The Danish innovative radio magazine Third Ear has rapidly become a huge success. During the festival, CPH:DOX and Third Ear offer audio art for the ears with tales of everything from true crime to life on Mars. Scott Carrier, the Bob Dylan of podcasters and the mind behind the successful ‘This American Life’, will also be a guest at the planetarium for a chat about life in American “independent radio”. Alan Hall and Eleanor McDowall will also attend the festival and prove how good sound and storytelling can shake you to your core. 

Live performances 

CPH:DOX takes the films out of the screen and put them into reality. In ‘The Reviews’ you can experience Michael Madsen giving a performative live review of imaginary – and of course highly original! – filmhistorical works, which didn’t exist before. You can also find Ross Sutherland give a live performance of his film ‘Stand By for Tape Back-Up’, where a worn out VHS Tape with clips from ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ constitute the backbone of the film. A humorist and heartwarming lo-fi performance. 

Innovative web projects

‘Stories Untold’ features a handful of short films produced on camera phones on and with extraordinary women from the MENA-region presented by C:NTACT on Sunday November 8 at Absalon. Syriatype is an online media project that uses art and interactive technology to create a platform for exchanges between Syrian activists and artists, and a global audience. The platform is built by and for artists, and you are invited to be there when the team behind the project launches Syriatype in our new festival centre in Kongens Haver Monday 9 November at 17:00. 


You can also celebrate CPH:DOX’s new digital video platform Everyday. Come to an Everyday evening at Cinemateket, where you can experience some of the best Everyday videos, meet director Nagieb Khaja and participate in the award ceremony for the best video in the ‘Everyday at Home’ competition. There will be bubbles and snacks at Asta Bar.
