Now exceeding 90,000 tickets domestically, Christina Rosendahl?s feature debut, Supervoksen (Triple Dare), is among the contenders at the festival in Copenhagen

Three Danish features have been selected for the competitions at the Buster ? Copenhagen International Film Festival for Children and Young Audiences, which runs through Friday, 15 September.

Michael Wikke and Steen Rasmussen?s Der var engang en dreng ? som fik en lillesøster med vinger (Skymaster) and Michael Hegner and Karsten Kiilerich?s fully-animated Den grimme ælling og mig (The Ugly Duckling and Me) are among the 11 entries in the children?s competition, while Christina Rosendahl?s Supervoksen (Triple Dare) is one of the 11 contenders in the youth section. From Nordisk Film Production, Rosendahl?s feature debut has taken more than 90,000 admissions domestically.

The festival, which started last week (Friday, 8 September), also has competitions for shorts and documentaries. It will award the first Dauphin d?Or, the newly instigated prize from CIFEJ (Centre International de Film pour l'Enfance et la Jeunesse), an international organisation that promotes quality pictures for children and young audiences. Among this year?s sidebars, festival director Dionysos Reitz Kerasiotis has programmed New Nordic Youth Films, a study of the work by Belgian directors Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Violence and Romance: Gangs on Film, movies about sports and robots, and a Teenage Horror Extravaganza, adding various seminars and workshops.
