DOX:ACADEMY welcomes students from all over the world to take part in cross-disciplinary courses during Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival March 25-29th 2019.

CRITICS’ AND CURATORS’ CLASS is a new and ambitious forum for young aspiring film critics and curators! Here students from various fields can meet and discuss ways to facilitate and write about contemporary documentaries. What is the role of criticism in relation to the continuously expanding and changing documentary format? What is the connection between curatorial practices in the art world and in festival programming? The participants of the CRITICS’ AND CURATORS’ Class will get insights to backstage processes of curating a documentary festival such as CPH:DOX as well as meet critics from some of the leading film journals. With CRITICS’ & CURATORS’ CLASS we wish to create the frames for creative and ambitious networks for film commentators, scholars and facilitators around the world.
