CPH:FORUM is CPH:DOX’s financing and co-production event dedicated to facilitate the development and financing of creative and visually strong film projects with international potential, whether they are features, series or new media projects.

The selected projects for CPH:FORUM 2021 will be announced in early March 2021.

CPH:FORUM 2021 will take place April 26 - 30, 2021. Over the course of the CPH:FORUM days, top producers and highly acknowledged directors from all over the world will take the stage to pitch 30 - 35 carefully selected projects in different pitch set-ups to an audience of industry professionals, including potential co-production partners, financiers and distributors.

Reflecting the overall profile of CPH:DOX, projects at CPH:FORUM are presented within five main categories:

  • FICTIONONFICTION: Challenging works in the hybrid landscape between fiction and non-fiction.
  • CINEMA: High-end theatrical feature-length documentaries with international distribution potential.
  • F:ACT: Projects bridging the fields of filmmaking, investigative journalism and activism.
  • ART: Film projects positioned in the borderland between art and film and screened both within the institution of cinema and that of visual arts.
  • SCIENCE: Creative documentary film and new media projects on science and technology.

Besides project presentations, CPH:FORUM offers tailored one-to-one meetings between the presenting filmmaker teams, interested financiers and co-production partners, in addition to a number of more informal networking events.

On top, we are proud to present the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award of €20,000 for the event's best pitch. Also, we are excited about our continued collaboration with Kickstarter, who will be onboard to provide guidance and promotional support for all film projects that are participating in CPH:FORUM, including campaign strategy and outreach, tailored guidance for specific projects, press support and promotion.


CPH:FORUM is primarily for producers and directors with selected projects and a wide variety of decision makers and stakeholders, interested in active attendance. A limited number of seats are available to professionals who wish to attend the three-day financing event as observers with priority given to producers.
