ACFF 2021 - 5th edition





Projects in Competition


Screened Films

Welcome to the Annual Copenhagen Film Festival, held every year in Husets Biograf with the aim of showcasing emerging filmmakers from around the world and promote both national and international talent.

We believe that our two-day festival  is  an  important  platform  for  the  representation  of  indie and short films in the heart of Denmark's capital. Held since 2017, every year ACFF gathers an international audience of film enthusiasts and delivers sold-out screenings.

In this edition, the ACFF team presented a wide selection of 26 films, from well-crafted animation, to surreal dramas, light documentaries and odd comedies; films that can make you reflect, feel and connect.

Thank you all for being part of the 5th edition of ACFF and we hope to see you all next year!
