The topics being broached include sociological experiments with young children (Ambo’s Utopia), a visit to the self-proclaimed state of Transnistria (Eborn’s Transnistra), absurd and inspirational reports on the current housing market situation (Gertten’s Push), an exploration of ten lives in ten different countries (Pozdorovkin’s Aleph) and yet another attempt to encapsulate the intricate mind of Lars von Trier (Gislason and Thuesen’s The Missing Films). 

On 20 March, as a prelude to CPH:FORUM, the festival presents CPH:WIP, a collection of Nordic works in progress, curated in collaboration with the Nordic film institutes.

The brand-new Science Film Forum, encouraging collaboration between filmmakers and scientists, will present new projects to potential backers. The first edition of the Science Film Forum takes place on 20 March, following a full day focusing on the intersection of science and film. Among the seven intriguing titles being presented is Internet vs Humanity, directed by Danes Lise Birk Petersen and David Borenstein, seeking to shed light on the challenges that digital media creates for democratic societies.

The full programme can be found here. CPH:INDUSTRY also includes CPH:LAB, the festival’s talent development and production programme, the ninth edition of which will unspool this year. The screening market CPH:MARKET is open to professionals during the entire festival, which runs from 15-25 March.
