Stream selection from DANISH:DOX AWARD and complete SHORT:DOX AWARD from CPH:DOX Copengahen for FREE on November 15 and November 16. Available also awarded films from these categories - Albert's Winter which was awarded DANISH:DOX AWARD and Three Pilots winning SHORT:DOX AWARD.


DANISH:DOX AWARD - A new generation of Danish directors and producers are currently travelling around the world and returning home with a number of awards and a level of recognition that most countries can only dream about. To follow this development CPH:DOX has initiated an award for the best Danish documentary. The selected films reach far and wide: from visual experiments via courageous genre fusions to classic portrait films. We have done our best to keep our eyes and ears open for new talents. This is why we this year even more than last can present an impressive lineup of first-time filmmakers.

SHORT:DOX AWARD is a new online competition, where the audience decides which film should walk away with the award worth 2,000 euros. The ten nominated films can be streamed and downloaded on our website, www.cphdox.dk, where three lucky short film fans can also win a portable PSPgo.

Documentary filmmaking is going through a rapid development. New digital video equipment has enabled a creative freedom, which is especially mirrored in short films. The short format is a playground and a laboratory, where both established and upcoming filmmakers can test their new ideas and pursue a personal vision without succumbing to compromises. A freedom shared by the nominated films, and which is expressed by the programme's ten poetic and unorthodox snapshots from the real world.

The aim of SHORT:DOX AWARD is to test new and alternative distribution platforms for intelligent and artistically original short films, and to support the growth of documentary filmmaking. The award for the winning film is meant as a financial support for future film projects.
