Founded in 2003, CPH: DOX is the third biggest documentary film festivals in the world. Each year, the festival presents a selection of more than 200 films and welcomes 2,000 industry professionals, journalists, and students. The festival takes place in Copenhagen and online. CPH: DOX focuses on three main tracks: science, society, and art.  

The festival selects films for six international competitions as well as several non-competitive sidebars. Dox:Award is the international main competition; The Next: Wave is dedicated to emerging filmmakers; F:ACT Award is dedicated to films in the field between documentary filmmaking and investigative journalism; and New: Vision presents ground-breaking experiments in the area between documentary and artistic reflection. 

CPH: DOX also offers professional seminars, a screening market, and the international financing and co-production event CPH: FORUM, as well as the film production program CPH: LAB.
