About FILM-X

FILM-X is the Danish Film Institute's computer based, interactive film studio for children and adolescents.


FILM-X, the interactive film studio at the Danish Film Institute, gives kids a chance to experience how a film is made. Discover your potential as director, actor or editor. Play around with a wealth of movie-making effects and let your imagination run wild, as you and your crew produce your very own film.

Burn rubber in a Mini Cooper car chase, dodge hungry dinosaurs in the city streets or court a princess in a fairytale castle. You have ample opportunities to tell your story in FILM-X's three film studios. Using virtual sets, green screens and rear projection, you shoot and act in your own short films.

Try stop-motion technology in the animation studios and make a film from scratch – the sky’s the limit! After your visit, you can continue working on your animated film at home.

After films have been shot, each group works in a studio with sound recordings. Pre-produced clips of sounds and images are added during the editing process. The completed film will be available for you to screen online.

All visits conclude with a screening of everyone’s films in the FILM-X cinema.
