CPH:DOX – Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival – is one of the largest documentary film festivals in the world.
CPH:DOX was founded in 2003. Supported by film professionals as well as the national press, CPH:DOX grew from 14,000 admissions in its first year to a record-breaking total of 110,500 admissions in 2018.
CPH:DOX continues to develop and expand, presenting a program that ranges from the works of major international directors to fresh new talent, from large scale theatrical releases to works existing somewhere between cinema and visual art. The programme bridges the gaps between different media disciplines, offering new perspectives and creative crossovers between art and documentary cinema. This forward thinking festival format has marked CPH:DOX as one of the world’s leading documentary happenings.
DOX:AWARD is our main competition. 12 nominated films have been selected due to their strong, independent expression, their cinematic quality and their insisting that documentaries deserve their place in cinemas.
Last but not least, these films expand the possibilities of the medium and its relation to reality. The winner of DOX:AWARD will be appointed by an international jury, and awarded a cash prize of 5.000€.
During the eleven days of the film festival CPH:DOX also presents audiovisual concerts, art exhibitions, talks and debates, masterclasses, regional film events, a school programme, EVERYDAY workshops and industry activities, such as CPH:CONFERENCE, CPH:MARKET, CPH:LAB and the international financing and co-production event CPH:FORUM.
