The annual ten-day Copenhagen documentary film festival will present more than 200 films at venues across the city this spring, along with a selection of musical performances, art displays and seminars.
If we had to choose just one highlight, it would be the opening of a new exhibition space at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, which will house three separate temporary cinemas.
But running it a close second is a selection of films curated by the British band the XX. Their program ‘I see you’, taken from the title of their recent album, will encompass themes of identity, gender, performance, youth culture and LGBT.

Canada’s Tony Law and Britain’s Paul Foot are a cut above the norm we usually welcome to these shores. Foot, in particular, is a comedian who is hard to forget. In his folly and satire is a burning, undeniable truth.

Stalin, the Nazis and Danish football are three of many subjects that will be discussed and digested at this annual history fair. Be warned though: all the speaking is in Danish.
