80 kr.

21:30 – ?? // 80 kr.

A “behind the scene” documentary about six european skate photographers, filmed completely on super 8 film. I’m not that much into skating, but this sounds like a big aesthetic experience. Especially if you’re both interested in photography and skating.

Read more about the movie and watch the trailer at SweetTalkCopenhagen.

Also some of the photos from the movie will be exhibited at hotel Fox (no entrance fee). Hotel Fox has some of the most amazing interieur decorations I’ve seen . If you haven’t been there yet – this is a good opportunity to both see a (I presume) great exhibition and a hotel out of the ordinary.

Book tickets at Grand Teatret.

Free, cheap beer and popcorn.

20:00 – 23:00 // free entrance

Watch international films for free with Copenhagen Movie Evenings.

Tired of all the snow, minus degrees and icy pavements? Really just wanna stay at home, cuddled up in a blanket? Well, this event is worth fighting the cold winter for.

Every second Thursday of the month all winter long, CPH Movie Evenings shows films from all around the world, films reflecting the complex world we live in. All films will be in English or with English subtitles, and it’s films that are not premiering in the commercial cinemas. The keywords for the films showed is “identity and culture in a political and social world – one way or another.”

The films are for free and the cafe will sell popcorn and cheap beer. Another cool thing is that every film will be chosen by the audience who shows up on the evening. You can propose and read about the films on CPH Movie Evenings’ website.

So put on that woolen underwear, get out the door and enjoy a cozy evening at Støberiet.

7 February: Sunday on a tuesday

Huset, Magstræde 14, second floor Show map
no entrance fee

19:00, 20:00, 21:00, 22:00 // no entrance fee

Huset i Magstræde (the house in Magstræde) hosts various cultural events such as independant theatre and concerts. The house is really cosy and is located in the “old” crooked part of inner city.

There’s also a small cinema in the house, that features selected cult movies and on tuesday you can experience the cinema for free, when the Danish short film Søndag / herfra hvor vi står (Sunday / from where we stand) has its premier.

I’m expecting something really Copenhagen’ish as the main character is Steen Jørgensen, an “old” beloved Danish musician and because the story takes place in a traditional courtyard in Nørrebro. The plot is love.

The short film is 30 minutes long and is shown four times from 19:00 – 22:00. Remember cash if you want something from the bar. Prepare yourself for an all Danish experience; without knowing, I’m guessing it’s without subtitles – but don’t let that scare you off, love is an universal language right?

Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival CPH: DOX, which in 2003 started out as Natfilm Festivalen, has been expanding ever since the start and has become Denmark’s ambassador in documentaries.

Over the next ten days the festival challenges the traditional boundaries between genres and media and apart from the many movies the program offers a wide range of cross-alliances between film, media, sound and art.

Here are a few star sprinkles from the program to you:

5 Nov: A metro ride to Norway @Kgs Nytorv metro st, 17:00 // free entrance
In cooperation with the Cph Metro the festival shows the much talked about film Bergensbanen – the 7-hour movie recorded through the windscreen of a train on the 377 km long journey from Bergen to Oslo in Norway.

Throughout the film the camera is kept in the same position while the train chugs over 300 bridges, through nearly 200 tunnels and numerous smaller cities in Norway.

The train journey begins in Kgs. Nytorv metro st and the experience will be spiced up with audio from Jonas Munk and DJ Kim LAS.

11 Nov: An afternoon w/ Ben & Josh Safdie @Teater Grob, 15:00-16:30 // free entrance
Experience the two American brothers and independent-darlings Ben & Josh Safdie talking about how they have conquered the festival world and the hearts of the audience through their poetic and dreamy everyday stories.

You also get the opportunity to see the movies ‘We Are Going To The Zoo’ (Josh) and ‘The Acquaintances of a Lonely John’ (Ben). There will be snacks and a free organic beer to all guests. Sounds like a cozy afternoon.

14 Nov: Animal Collective vs Danny Perez @the National Gallery SMK, 19:00-midnight // 200 Dkk
Along with their regular visual collaborator Danny Perez the experimental band Animal Collective presents the brand new installation ‘Globby Bodies’.

The concert is part of the AUDIO:VISUALS program that combines images and live music. This live performance which stretches over five hours will fill out four of the exhibition spaces in the building. So you can expect a barrage on your senses as the show will include installation, dj sets, video, space and various projections and sound systems.

Friday 19:00, Saturday 15:00, Sunday 13:00 // 70 Dkk (Friday 50 Dkk)

Join the three-day mini film festival in Husets Biograf this weekend and take a closer look into the story about the Beat generation.

Unlike other film festivals in Copenhagen, Husets Biograf is known to zoom in on a single topic or a single person, where you can actually manage to see every film on the program.

This program focuses not only on the authentic aspects of the American Beat movement through a series of documentaries, but will also explore the ways in which this movement was resold to the public. A ‘popularization’ which among other turned Beats into ‘beatniks’.

Among others you can see the documentaries “Bukowski – Born Into This’ on Los Angeles’ most famous everyday poet, ‘The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg’ about the Beat Generation’s most prominent figure, and ‘Whatever Happened to Kerouac?’.

Saturday and Sunday writer and director Lars Movin will introduce the films and answer questions from the audience.

CGLFF stands for Copenhagen Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and this year the group of volunteers behind the festival will welcome you to ‘la grande’ silver wedding party, meaning that CGLFF celebrates it’s 25th edition.

This makes CGLFF the longest running gay and lesbian film festival in the world.

To mark the anniversary the crew invites you to the silver wedding at Cosy Bar, which will serve as a program release at the same time for the more than sixty films on the program.

Said in the festival’s own words “We challenge sexual stereotypes. We show films that deal with gender policy and reflect a diverse reality. Films that inspire and/or simply entertains and lightens up the party”. That sounds cool.

On the night there will be ‘pindemadder’ (mini stick sandwiches), free cider from Somersby, hurrays and lots of nice tunes provided by Kim Kemi, Djuna Barnes and dj GUL.
