Sune L Thomsen and his Gentofte Kino located just outside central Copenhagen. The 2023 GIFF 70 70mm Festival takes place from Friday 27. January - Sunday 29. January 2023.

Welcome to the third 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. The 2023 70mm Festival takes place from Friday 27. January - Sunday 29. January 2023.

"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"

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 of 70mm 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 DATSAT and Dolby Stereo for 70mm, a brand new 4K 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 launched the first 70mm festival in Copenhagen in many years.

The Wild Bunch, now on the run pursued by Thornton and his posse' of disreputable bounty hunters, then make a deal with Mapache, an unprincipled Mexican bandit general, to steal for him a railway wagon load of army guns and ammunition. They succeed but fall out with Mapache over his brutal treatment and murder of Angel.

Bear-cub Youk lives happily with his mother. A fatal rock-blow makes him an orphan. The innocent youngster then wanders alone in the wild where it is fun to play with butterflies and eat mushrooms. He seeks refuge with Kaar, a huge Kodiak bear as solitary as he is sinister. Kaar rejects Youk, until the cub licks the wounds Kaar received from a hunter’s gun. A friendship is born. Kaar shares his life experience with Youk, who gradually learns about the dangers of life. The cub will have to face many adventures as well as men with guns. Tom the hunter (Cheky Karyo) and his sinister accomplice Bill the trapper (Jack Wallace) prowl the forest. Captured and separated from his protector, Youk wins over Tom, who gradually sees his prey in a new light. (jjannaud.com)
