The Danish Film Institute's efforts to create greater cultural and ethnic diversity in Danish film is based on a charter (in Danish) developed with broad support from the audiovisual industry.
A number of initiatives focusing on sharing knowledge and changing practice have been implemented:
Casting directors have held workshops for amateurs and professional actors of non-Danish ethnicity and created a bank of names to be used by casting directors throughout the country. A mentor programme has been set up, where experienced filmmakers, including producers, directors and screenwriters, help young colleagues get a foot in the door of the business. Plans are also being drawn up for a special internship programme at production companies.
