What is the DIS Film Club?
Film Club is a social and academic community, where faculty and students from DIS and the University of Copenhagen meet to develop and discuss their interest in art cinema and the European film scene.
Join DIS Film Buffs and Experts: Morten Egholm and Anne Sofie Kluge Hedegaard
Morten has a Ph.D. in film studies and has written several articles on film history and Danish television, among other topics. He is the editor of film journal, Kosmorama, and watches around 300 films a year!
Anne Sofie has a Master in Film and Media Studies and almost a decade’s experience at numerous film festivals in Copenhagen (CPH:DOX, CPH PIX and CAFx). Her love for great stories points in many directions, but feature film, documentary film and audio stories have a special place in her heart. On the side, she is also organizing Radio Cinema events in the dark.
Fall 2019 Film Club Sessions
The Film Club meets for four informal sessions during the semester, and these take place in various cinemas throughout the city. Although we would love for all our members to show up at every session, we know from experience that sometimes some of you simply can’t make it or that things come up last minute – in that case, please cancel well in advance or as soon as possible.
Session 1: Screening of a Danish Film and Introduction to the Club
Come and meet your fellow cinephiles and settle down to watch the first screening together in the DIS Cinema. This year, we are opening with a Danish film with English subtitles and an introduction to the Film Club.
Date: Monday, September 2
Location: DIS Cinema
Session 2: Manson Kulten (Helter Skelter) at Cinemateket, the Danish Film Institute
This is your opportunity to get immersed in a hotspot for Danish film enthusiasts and discuss with the experts! Just around the corner from DIS, Cinemateket has a program ranging from classical cinema to contemporary world and underground film. This evening we will watch the docu-fiction Manson Kulten (1976) on 35 mm. The film is based on a novel called Helter Skelter, which portraits the trial of the cult icon Charles Manson and the long line of murders he committed.
Date: Tuesday, September 24
Location: Cinemateket, the Danish Film Institute
Session 3: Film Screening at the Art House Cinema Vester Vov Vov
We will invite you to the screening of the Swedish-Danish film with English subtitles “Koko-Di Koko-Da” by the director Johannes Nyholm, who walked into the film industry after his short film “Baby in Las Palmas” made it as a viral hit at festivals. His now second feature, which is titled by a children song, is a grotesque fable and has been called a horror version of Groundhog Day with elements of absurd humor and dark comedy.
Date: Monday, October 21
Location: Art House Cinema, Vester Vov Vov
Session 4: Concluding with a Film Screening at CPH PIX Film Festival
We are concluding the semester with participating in the CPH:PIX Festival. CPH PIX has a passion for feature films focusing on emerging talents and artistic courage. They screen films from all around the world anchoring the films in a social context through artist talks, debates or Q&A with directors. We will go for a real film festival experience watching one of the many Nordic films that the festival has to offer and hopefully followed by a Q&A of the director.
Date: Thursday, November 14
Time: Evening – Precise time TBA
Location: Meeting Spot TBA (Somewhere in Copenhagen)
