Great Nordic films have been selected for the 2014 edition of Hot Docs, North America's premier documentary festival, market and conference, taking place in Toronto, Canada, 24 April-4 May 2014.

New Nordic and International Initiatives

DFI Launches Shorts & Docs Streaming Service
Hundreds of Danish short films and documentaries, both new and classic titles, are now available for free on the Danish Film Institute's new streaming service

At Filmcentralen / For alle hundreds of titles can be watched directly without restriction, subscription or password. If a title isn't available directly on the site, the user will be directed to other services where the film is available, be it the Danish libraries' existing streaming service, Filmstriben or commercial services. This part of the service has been developed in collaboration with the Danish Producers' Association, for producers to be able to explore the potential financial gain from commercial distribution. Besides watching films, users can read interviews, talent profiles or in-depth articles.

Henrik Bo Nielsen, head of the DFI says: "We have worked a long time to make these films accessible to Danish citizens. Danish short films and documentaries are of exceptional quality and tell important stories. Audiences flock to festivals and events, and many films achieve high ratings on television. But we need to make these films available to an even broader audience". also contains a section for teachers and students (Filmcentralen / Undervisning) with plenty of inspiring materials and articles.
