Each year CPH:DOX fills Copenhagen cinemas with a selection of more than 130 documentary films from around the world. During the ten festival days CPH:DOX also presents five days of professional seminars and provides an international forum and meeting place with the DOX:MARKET. CPH:DOX hosts six official competition programs: The CPH:DOX Award series, the CPH:DOX Amnesty Award series, the CPH:DOX New Vision Award, the CPH:DOX Sound & Vision Award series, the Danish Doc Award and the Doc Alliance Award.
The festival was founded in 2003 as an off-spring of Natfilm Festivalen, Copenhagen's largest film festival. Supported by film professionals as well as the national press, CPH:DOX grew from 14,000 admissions in its first year to an impressive 45,000 in 2010. The festival continues to develop and expand, presenting a program that ranges from the works of major international directors to new talent, from large-scale theatrical releases to films and formats that don't reach cinema and tv-screens. The program goes beyond traditional boundaries between disciplines and media, offering perspectives on creative crossovers between cinema, television and media art.
With a solid base in the documentary approach to reality, CPH:DOX aims at building bridges to a wide range of related art forms on the music scene and in the visual arts. This exploration of the interaction and interfaces between different media and cultural traditions emphasizes the constant evolution of the documentary genre, and creates a space for inspiration and dialogue between different creative forms with exhibitions and performances, music and sound projects, live acts, VJing and the latest concepts of expanded cinema.
In addition to the festival and the DOX:MARKET, CPH:DOX initiated DOX-ON-WHEELS, an alternative distribution platform for documentary films. DOX-ON-WHEELS is dedicated to bringing both Danish and International documentary films to the farthest corners of Denmark, adding debates, live appearances and other events to the screening program.
