The Eurimages Co-production Development Award goes to TATA/FATHER by Radu Ciorniciuc, Lina Vdovîi & Monica Lazurean (Gorgan / Romania / Italy / Germany)
Jury statement: “We first wanted to congratulate all the participants for the wonderful stories and presentations, and we really look forward to watching all your films in the cinema soon. The Eurimages Co-production Development Award of 20.000 Euros goes to a project which takes on a complex personal story with depth, trying to understand the cycle of violence and its mechanisms. Most importantly, it took on the subject with honesty and heart, and shows great potential to benefit from the award. The award goes to TATA/FATHER by directors Lina Vdovîi & Radu Ciorniciuc, and producer Monica Lazurean-Gorgan”

CPH:DOX to launch Big Digital Live Platform. Tine Fischer, director of CPH:DOX, says:
“Denmark is still affected by the COVID-19 lockdown, and the cultural sector – including movie theatres – will still be closed for the public when CPH:DOX is launching this year’s festival on April 21. Therefore, I am very excited that we can present a large and ambitious digital programme that will be accessible for a big, hungry audience. Our digital platform will feature an ambitious film programme, important live panels and Q&As with filmmakers. We are creating a digital space where we meet and listen to great artists, innovative scientists, and also some of those marginalized voices that really need to be heard.”
In addition to online screenings of 180 new documentary films, CPH:DOX will offer an abundance of digital live events when the festival kicks off on April 21.
A large debate programme with 40 digital live talks and panels will pass the mic to both well-established names and new voices. With large TV studio broadcasts and interactive formats, audiences can expect a festival of live conversations and encounters between people with experiences and opinions.
