“From the inaugural DFF (2015) up until the 2nd (2016), there was a substantial increase of 51% in attendees, which is indicative of a great interest of the Filipino people in Danish cinema,” says Cultural Affairs Officer, Angelo Cruz. “The Embassy of Denmark prides itself in its continuous efforts in propagating Danish films to the Philippine audience and market. The results from previous years prove that there is demand for films that veer away from the typical rise-climax-fall narrative which, for just reasons, is what is most familiar to the general public.”

“We are eager to continue developing our social and cultural links to the Philippines and give Filipinos the chance to learn about some of our social, political and cultural characteristics through film, music, painting, literature…. We believe by engaging with each other, we can inspire each other and develop together. I look forward to seeing a crowd at our film screenings in October,” says Ambassador of Denmark to the Philippines, Jan Top Christensen.

Screening Schedules

The selection and screening of films are made possible by The Danish Film Institute, TrustNordisk, Shang Cineplex, and the Film Development Council of the Philippines through their Film Cultural Exchange Program.
