AWARD + NEW DANISH SHORTS (under 25 years)

Sunday 11.10.20 / 19:15 / Cinemateket

This programme contains the cream of the crop of this year’s film production by brand new Danish talents, that are making their entrance on the film scene with both fiction and documentary films.

The films in this programme are all embedded in the youthful perspective and navigate complicated emotional lives, relationship constellations and mediated realities. These subjects and themes are perpetually relevant and especially pertinent for this generation and these shorts engage with them with a lived in insight and promising understanding of the cinematic medium.

All films are screened with English subtitles except for ‘Half a Year’ and ‘Just for Now’.


All the films are chosen from short films sent to us through our open call.
They are all nominated for the Best Danish Short Film under 25 years award. 
After the films there will be a short ceremony where our 2 juries will hand out this year’s two awards.
