We all here speak the same language, the language of cinema, and it gives us the ability to share our culture, ideas, and emotions. Our goal is to display movies that are in two main categories, one about climate change, and the other one silent movies from all filmmakers around the world.

Tulipoff International Film Festival runs on an annual basis. All the selected movies will be displayed for the public in Copenhagen and will be professionally looked into and talked over in-depth. And also we have meetings that young filmmakers can attend to have the chance to hear a discussion about the movies and an opportunity to gain some valuable experiences.

Tulipoff International film festival is an international short film festival in Copenhagen. The festival is an alternative film festival which was born with passion, creativity, and responsible spirit to make a platform for changing idea and see a new way to our world.
