The Danish Film Institute develops cultural exchange projects with partners in countries as
varied as Brazil, Greece, Tanzania, USA, and Syria - especially in the field of film literacy and film education.
The Danish Film Institute, recognising film as one of the best tools to convey complicated cultural and humanistic messages, works actively in an international context to promote films for children and young people.
Danish films are showcased at film festivals worldwide, and international films are introduced to Danish children and young people at national film festivals and through the Danish Film Institute’s school and pre-school cinema programmes.
The Danish Film Institute develops cultural exchange projects with partners in countries as varied as Brazil, Greece, Tanzania, USA, and Syria. In addition, the Danish Film Institute supports the coproduction of a handful of films for children and young people with foreign companies every year.
There is a great deal of interest, internationally, in the Danish experiences with film production, distribution, and film education. At the same time the Danish Film Institute seeks inspiration outside Denmark to strengthen the national film industry and the cultural diversity within the Film Institute’s many activities for children and young people.
The Danish Film Institute collaborates with international film festivals, organisations, embassies and representatives, European Children’s Film Association (ECFA), Centre International du film pour l’Enfance et la Jeunesse (CIFEJ), Danish Centre for Culture & Development (DCCD), Danish Arts Council, etc.
