How to Enter the Danish Film Industry

The Danish film industry can be difficult to enter because of cultural differences and many non-written practices.

Creative Europe MEDIA Desk Denmark experience a growing number of meetings with foreign film professionals living in Denmark - maybe because of love or other very good reasons - who find it difficult to enter the Danish film industry.

Together with the CPH WEB FEST we invite these filmmakers/professionals living in Denmark to a meeting held at the Danish Film Institute.

We want to help professionals or well-experienced foreign individuals gain insights into the Danish film industry and to provide a networking experience that can help facilitate your future in the Danish film industry.

At the meeting you will be asked to share your own experience, just as the organizers will share their knowledge and network.

Who is the meeting for?

The meeting is for those foreign professionals interested in entering the Danish film industry and who would like to share knowledge with each other and with the specially invited successful guests.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is mandatory.

Guest speakers include

  • Benedetta Sandri - Reinvent Studios (Italian)
