Finally it’s here! This year we’re officially launching Refugee Film Festival! Not only the first of its kind in Denmark but also in Scandinavia. Are you interested in Film, Culture and Migration? Or do you have a passion to understand issues and complexities underlying refugees’ journeys for survival? Maybe you’re also interested in the cultural richness and diversity that refugees bring as they settle in new homes across the globe? Our program this year takes place over three days – first with two film screenings, receptions and talks in the Cinemateket, and then a closing party with art and music at Union on Nørre Allé in Copenhagen.

ABOUT REFUGEE FILM FESTIVAL: The festival explores the lives and experiences of refugees. We initiate dialogues across different groups with the aim of contributing to a greater, more honest and more nuanced representation of refugees – also in film Through our many years of work with refugees, we have realized the lack of knowledge and the urgent need to demystify refugee identity through film and culture. The festival aims to ensure a better representation of refugees on film, as well as give people with a refugee background something to themselves in. A more positive and nuanced understanding of their own history and identity. The festival is run by volunteers and supported with funds from Tuborgfondet.
