For the first time in Danish history the Danish judicial system has allowed an entire case to be filmed. The case concerns a man who killed his best friend with a Samurai sword - was it an accident or was it a deliberate act when the defendant wielded the sword? It is an emotionally charged case where much is at stake for the defendant, who has to re-experience the tragic night when his friend died, and who must also try to pull through a trial in which he faces a severe prison sentence.
Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film,
dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution,
og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med.
Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution,
foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
