Dinner & Docs

Dinner & Docs is a new concept which seeks to combine culinary dining experiences with challenging documentaries. Each Dinner & Docs event consists of a film screening followed by an intimate and informal dinner and debate in the company of the film director and the other guests.

The motivation behind Dinner & Docs is to get documentaries out to a wider audience while at the same time creating new possibilities for film directors to show their film in an intimate environment  composing a space for longer and personal conversation and exchange with the audience.

Meals are provided by the local café and restaurant Øens Spisested located in Kulturhuset Prismen at Amager and the films are curated by Elk Film and film director Andreas Dalsgaard.
