The film programme (see the news) will unfold across cinemas in Copenhagen and 42 municipalities in Denmark, embracing nationwide distribution. Among the 84 world premieres, 57 are feature-length films, marking a record number for the festival. Six competition categories, including the new HUMAN:RIGHTS Award, will be adjudicated by an international jury. Additionally, from 22-31 March, a curated selection of films will be available for online streaming on the festival's PARA:DOX platform. The 21st edition of CPH:DOX emphasises the role of art in fostering dialogue and promoting introspection, as we arrive at a critical juncture where such engagement is essential. As audiences explore this year's competitive line-up, they will experience cinema's power to provoke thought and conversation.

Niklas Engstrøm, artistic director of CPH:DOX, says: “For CPH:DOX, our primary focus is on tackling the most crucial and pressing contemporary issues. In a world increasingly marked by polarisation, we must be willing to challenge our own established truths and engage in meaningful dialogues with those holding different opinions and perspectives. Director Max Kestner exemplifies this open and inquisitive spirit in the festival's opening film, Life and Other Problems [+lire aussi :

, where he embarks on a quest to unravel the meaning and value of life, inspired by the global media scandal surrounding the euthanasia of a giraffe in a Danish Zoo exactly a decade ago. This same ethos of openness and curiosity guides us at CPH:DOX as we navigate the complexities of the world – even during such tumultuous times as we are experiencing at the moment.”

Since 7 October 2023, the enduring Israeli-Palestinian conflict has dominated headlines, sparking intense debate. This year's festival spotlights this urgent issue, with seven films delving into different aspects of the conflict, including three world premieres. Tal Barda’s I Shall Not Hate, in the HUMAN:RIGHTS Competition, follows Palestinian author Izzeldin Abuelaish, a Nobel Prize nominee who perseveres in striving for peace, despite losing his daughters in a Gaza attack. Other films like Larissa Sansour and Søren Lind's Familiar Phantoms and Jonathan Schaller and Philipp Schaeffer's Silent Night explore nuanced perspectives. Additionally, new releases such as No Other Land [+lire aussi :

and There Was Nothing Here Before offer fresh insights. Erin Axelman and Sam Eilertsen's controversial Israelism also adds depth to the discourse.

The "Conflicted" festival theme delves into global conflicts touching upon culture, identity and territorial disputes. Alongside Israel-Palestine, it examines Russia's war on Ukraine, Chinese-Taiwanese tensions and Armenia-Azerbaijan's Nagorno-Karabakh issue. While recognising their uniqueness, the festival underscores their common themes of identity and territorial discord, acknowledging the absence of any easy solutions. Notably, progress in the Northern Irish conflict is highlighted in The Flats. Moreover, a new HUMAN:RIGHTS Award is being introduced in collaboration with the Danish Institute for Human Rights. Ten films are vying for this prize, featuring five world, one European and four international premieres, thus amplifying the festival's commitment to exploring pressing global issues.
