|Welcome to the first edition of Gentofte International Film Festival, or "GIFF 70". With support from The Danish Film Institute and Carlsberg, GIFF 70 will focus exclusively on the majestic and legendary 7OMM format. GIFF 70 is intended to be an annual festival in January. Because of pandemic restrictions, the 2021 festival has been moved to May 21-23, 2021.|
"Our ambitions are high, and in the future our aim is also to have international guests travelling to Gentofte to see films in the authentic 70mm format at the Kino"
-, says Sune Lind Thomsen, manager of Gentofte Kino.
Sune bought the Kino in March 2020, and his ambition was to be able to show all film formats, including 70mm. GIFF 70 is a celebration of large format films, and to the greatest film makers. Sune bought an authentic Philips DP70 Todd-AO projector and had it installed. The premiere was Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" in blazing 70mm in August 2020. It was a huge success in 70mm, playing for more than a month. Gentofte Kino was one of two dozen European cinemas which showed "Tenet" exclusively in the splendour of 7OMM.
The Kino opened in 1938, and has welcomed guests for 83 years! In fact today, it is the second largest Danish single screen cinema with 290 comfortable Quinette seats. The matt-white screen is 12 meters wide and with a proper CinemaScope curve. The Kino is equipped with Dolby Stereo for 70mm, a digital projector, and not least with proper curtains in front of the screen.
This is a unique opportunity to see some recent films presented in authentic 70mm and some vintage classics. Do not miss this rare chance to see some of the greatest films in a real cinema. Within these classic settings, Gentofte International Film Festival 2021 launches the first 70mm festival in many years in Copenhagen.
