In the light of the global health crisis, a Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival, CPH:DOX, decided to cancel the physical event and rolled out a digital version. #STAYHOMESTAYREAL is the new slogan inviting to participate in the festival while cosy staying on your couch and choosing from 165 selected documentaries, live talks, and debates that are streamed on Youtube and Facebook.

CPH:DOX Invites to a Virtual Festival

Being the event that aims for a deep social impact, even in current circumstances CPH:DOX goes beyond simply showing films and creates a space for the dialogue and reflections, in this way making sure that the problems presented on screens would stay with viewers for a longer period. This week the festival kicked off industry activities with an online conference about AI and digital security with Edward Snowden who leaked information about US surveillance programme and is called the world’s most famous whistleblower.
