SEE FILMS. The DFI Cinematheque in the heart of Copenhagen offers a rich programme of more than 60 films every month, many of which are in English or with English subtitles. Every month, we also invite you to enjoy Danish films with English subtitles.

The Cinematheque screens Danish and international titles in three cinemas and is located in the DFI Filmhouse. Films are screened Tuesday through Sunday.

Discover this month's films, many of which are in English or with English subtitles, in the print programme below or online at (both in Danish).

A special series for our international audience, Danish on a Sunday, presents a new or classic Danish film with English subtitles.


You are always welcome to call our ticket office for any questions you might have about films, tickets or the DFI Filmhouse.
