Red Carpet for Docs…

and Nordic films, is the headline for an interview brought by the Nordisk Film & TV Fond, link for the whole text below. Kim Foss, director of the art house cinema Grand in Copenhagen since 2006, AND through the associated Camera Film distributor. I quote some of the comments Foss brings forward concerning documentaries:

”Other genres that have been winning bets in the past few years for Camera Film are documentaries. In 2019, the company distributed seven documentaries (out of 18 titles), including Norway’s The Men’s Room and the Danish docs Cold Case Hammarskjöld by Mads Brügger (6,228 admissions), Fall of Kings by Mads Kamp Thulstrup (6,793 admissions) and Photographer of War by Boris B. Bertram, second biggest Danish documentary in a decade with 13,643 admissions, according to Foss. 

“We believe strongly in Danish documentaries and this is where we will put a greater emphasis in the future,” he says. “Danish docs allow us to create in-depth marketing campaigns in conjunction with directors, local production companies, backed by the Danish Film Institute and documentary is where I come from,” said Foss who co-founded CPH:DOX in 2003. 

That’s very good news at the beginning of a new year, where Camera is taking care of the distribution of the Oscar short-listed film The Cave by Feras Fayyad, premiered two days ago.
