The xx to curate ‘I See You’ film series in Copenhagen

It's part of the CPH:DOX film festival

The xx have announced that they will be presenting a series of films and live events at this year’s CPH:DOX film festival in Copenhagen.

CPH:DOX is one of the largest documentary film festivals in the world and takes place from March 15-25, 2018.

Exploring themes of “identity, gender, performance, youth culture and LGBTIQ issues”, The xx’s programme is named after their third album, 2017’s ‘I See You‘, and is informed by the topics explored in the record.

The ‘I See You’ programme begins on March 17 with the BAFTA-nominated British film God’s Own Country and will include events and Q&As with directors.

In a statement to CPH: DOX singer and bassist Oliver Sim said: “I’m excited to show some of my favourite feature films and documentaries in Copenhagen. These films mean so much to me on a personal level, but at the same time touch on so many of the issues, narratives and passions that are so important to the band as a whole.”

Tickets go on sale on February 16 and more information can be found here.

The xx are among six artists nominated for Best British Band supported by Zig-Zag at the VO5 NME Awards 2018. Others in contention for the prize are Wolf Alice, Alt-J, Kasabian, The 1975 and Bastille. The event takes place this Wednesday, February 14.
