The Danish brigade in Sweden

11 min.DK/Documentary

The prospect of the invasion of Denmark by the liberating forces necessitated very stiff training for the free Danish forces. We see the Danish Brigade being trained in the depths of the Swedish forests. We get an impression of the comradeship and faith in the future which bound these young Danes together. Many of the members of the Brigade had been workers in the Danish underground movement who had been forced to leave Denmark.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
