Copenhagen fest unveils competition films

13 pics will face off in CPH:PIX event

Thirteen films made by first-time feature helmers will compete for the main prize at Copenhagen’s CPH:PIX, which runs April 15-25.

Among the films is Brit Nick Whitfield’s comedy “Skeletons,” about two exorcists, starring Jason Isaacs and Paprika Steen.

The U.S. is represented by Matt Porterfield’s “Putty Hill,” a drama about how a young man’s death unites his family.

Pic preemed at last month’s Berlinale, as did “Puzzle,” an Argentinian-French co-production, helmed by Natalia Smirnoff. Pic is about a housewife who develops a knack for solving jigsaws.

Norwegian drug addict story “The Angel,” helmed by Margreth Olin, played at the Toronto Film Festival and won the audience award at the Gothenburg Film Festival in February, while Danish helmer Kaspar Munk’s “Hold Me Tight,” a drama about four teenagers in a world of chaos, will world preem at the fest.

The winner of the New Talent Grand PIX award gets e50,000 ($68,000).

CPH:PIX was founded in 2008 when the Copenhagen Intl. Film Festival and the NatFilm Festival merged.
