Besides screening some of the most prominent contemporary documentaries, the festival is a meeting spot for industry professionals offering various extra features such as workshops, talks, live debates, and forums.
This year, DEDI has the honor to present the Egyptian Delegation participating in CPH:FORUM, one of the many networking platforms of the festival. By bringing prominent representatives from the film industries together, CPH:FORUM facilitates the development and financing of documentary film projects with international potential.
