The ITCHING SCRATCHING film festival is an annual cultural event that takes place in Aarhus, Denmark.
The idea with this kind of film festival is to show the audience what the young, up-and-coming directors from Denmark (DK) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) have been making for the past couple of years and how their work can be compared.
The festival provides a platform for the exposure of unknown and still to be renowned filmmakers and thus contributes to a greater understanding of their work and talent.
What these two small countries have in common is a great, proud and award winning filmmaking tradition. Films like Babette's Feast, In a Better World, No Man's Land and Grbavica are just few examples.
What are the similarities between these two countries’ talented directors’ work and where does their filmmaking diverge? Which stories do they choose to tell?
The aim of this festival is to create a new, inspiring network for all film enthusiasts and to show the audience something different – films that you have never seen.
