Media Coverage Good media response in the national and local media outlets.
Evaluation The festival has become an interesting film event for young newcomers and new talents. The 'German Day' is a traditional showcase presenting a significant number of contemporary German film productions. Good networking platform for national buyers, festival scouts and cinephiles. The festival also offers an attractive sidebar program and exciting music events.
In 2016, the CPH PIX merged with the children's film festival BUSTER that offers a wide range of films for children age 3-16 years.
