The purpose of carlthdreyer.dk
The purpose of this website is to disseminate information about Carl Theodor Dreyer and his work. Dreyer is considered the greatest Danish filmmaker ever and his films remain in demand in Denmark and around the world. Making several sections of the Carl Th. Dreyer Collection available online, the DFI seeks to facilitate the presentation and dissemination of new aspects of the director and his work.
The work of building carlthdreyer.dk has been going on from 2008-2010. The website was launched on 25 May 2010 and will continually be developed and updated with new content and materials from the Carl Th. Dreyer Collection.
This website was made possible by generous support from the Velux Foundation.
