The time has come: Danish pubcaster DR is devoting a slot to feature docs for the first time. Launching in November, ‘Documania’ will be a 90-minute primetime (9 p.m.) doc slot featuring films from Denmark and abroad. DR will commission, coproduce and acquire, says DR head of documentaries Mette Hoffmann Meyer, adding she’s looking for ‘entertaining, engaging, insightful and interesting films that help us understand the world a little better…I won’t show predictable films.’

Upcoming films that will air in the slot include Gonzo, Shine, Taxi to the Dark Side, The English Surgeon, Boogie Man and Stranded. And as for the slot’s ‘Documania’ name – it’s not set in stone yet, so Hoffmann Meyer says she’ll still consider suggestions. Get your thinking caps on!
