INTERNATIONAL DAYS

On selected days, you can watch premiere films with English subtitles at BIFFEN INTERNATIONAL - a concept targeted at North Jutland's non-Danish audience. On other days, the films are shown in their original language but with Danish subtitles.

Furthermore, Biffen shows a Cinematheque film (classics, cult films, etc.) every Tuesday night and these films are often with English subtitles as well. The Cinematheque films with English subtitles are listed below.

The Cinematheque is part of the Danish Film Institute and has an extensive collection of films that gives today's audiences a chance to experience world cinema spanning from the very beginning of film history to the latest digital releases.
