Jon Reiss Keynote Speaker for CPH:DOX Forum

by | November 11, 2009 | Uncategorized

I’ve been invited as the keynote speaker to the DOX:FORUM for the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.  Set in Copenhagen, the festival is a three-day distribution forum and market for newly finished and works-in-progress documentaries from around the world.  Check it out!

“Exploring other possibilities for documentary films than TV and focusing on theatrical, DVD, online and alternative distribution circuits, the Forum positions itself as a new international meeting place for film professionals focusing on high quality, artistic and visually strong documentary film  making.

Launched successfully in 2007 DOX:FORUM is an exclusive 3-day distribution forum and market event which presents a tightly packed program of work-in-progress presentations of new Nordic and international documentary projects in post production or late stages of production, pre-arranged one-on-one meetings, matchmaking events and a line-up of inspiring case stories and seminars.  The 2009 edition of DOX:FORUM will also see the addition of a number of world premieres presented in collaboration with the festival.

With an exclusive selection of brand new fantastic documentary projects and world premieres, reflecting CPH:DOX’s overall interest in strong cinematic art-house and documentary film making, invited content seekers are given a priority chance for discovering the next big title on the international market, before it hits the big winter and early spring venues.  A filmmakers forum as well, it also represents great opportunities for meeting new talent as well as established filmmakers for an up and close encounter.”
