Resumé

The Danish indie scene has, throughout the past decade, grown from being amateur home productions to smaller, more self-aware production companies. What I find interesting about this development is the fact that many of the indie filmmakers do not as such react against mainstream, blockbuster market dominance. They respond, instead, by delving directly into international blockbuster genres and styles in the search for something missing in Danish cinema.

This works, principally, by directly reacting against the institutional and economic dominance and protectionism of primarily The Danish Film Institute. Indirectly, the filmmakers seem to react against ‘what is allowed’ in Danish film culture. Therefore, they actually define themselves as being non-mainstream by focussing on international mainstream genres.
