Cinema and theatre

From silent films to the talkies, from escapism to social realism, from family comedies to the Dogme film, from mainstream to avant-garde, from action flicks to documentaries – it all covers Danish films.

At the beginning of the new millennium, Danish cinema is experiencing a boom period of international recognition and national progress. This success found its origins in the 1970s through intensified public effort with the 1972 Film Act and the establishment of the Danish Film Institute.
