Support to libraries

Via a curated selection of films and general know-how, the Danish Film Institute supports and inspires local libraries and cultural centres in setting up activities related to the dissemination of Danish documentary and short films.

The activities typically range from talks and screenings to film clubs and media events, and are aimed at both adult and young audiences.
