At this year’s festival, we have expanded our children’s program so much that we have chosen to do a mini-festival the following week – Copenhagen Short Film Festival Junior. From 13.-17. October you, along with your parents, can experience a wide range of fun and entertaining short films that explore different worlds, each with their own funny characters.
In collaboration with Børnebiffen, we have put together various programs that all cater to specific target groups (3-5 years and 5-7 years). 

We’re looking forward to seeing you for some fun short film screenings for the whole family

Get your tickets through Cinemateket’s homepage.

Please note that the films are in Danish or without dialogue.
