The purpose of the Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Film is to award grants for Danish film artists in order to support their work and development.

The Committee for Film does not provide funding for specific film projects nor the promotion of Danish film internationally. Funding programmes for such purposes lie within The Danish Film Institute.

The funding programmes within The Danish Film Institute include distribution and marketing of feature films, short and documentary films, as well as Danish participation at international film festivals and Danish participation in international co-productions of short and documentary films.
