New Danish Screen

Established in 2003, New Danish Screen is a talent development subsidy scheme providing support for fiction and documentary films.

New Danish Screen is founded on a partnership between the Danish Broadcasting Corporation DR, TV 2 and the Danish Film Institute (DFI), and abides by the current Film Policy Accord. Funds of roughly 17 million euros have been allocated to the scheme over the Accord term 2015-2018.

Through this support scheme new generations of filmmakers are given the opportunity to push their limits and create new experiences for cinema and TV audiences. New Danish Screen aims at utilising the energies and directions of talented creators, rather than guide them in well-defined directions.

New Danish Screen is aimed at new talents working on the professional level as well as less experienced filmmakers. What counts is enabling manifested talents to develop, test out new ideas or change course from their past productions.
