We are happy to welcome you to OFF – Odense International Film Festival, for a week of not only fantastic short films, but also to experience one of the oldest and most exciting cities in Denmark.
Every year, OFF – Odense International Film Festival invites everyone from near and far to take part in the festivities in week 35.
The festival area is located in the heart of Odense, in the area around Brandts Klædefabrik. All screening venues are situated within this area.

You can take the train directly from CPH Airport to Odense Station. You can get tickets in the ticket machines in the arrival hall or you can book the tickets on DSB’ website or app. If you order tickets in good time, you can get Orange tickets, which are cheaper than normal train tickets.

When arriving at Odense Station, you can go to your hotel or straight to the festival. It is a short walk of approx. 1 km. Or you can take a free citybus from Odense Station. The bus is called 10C and they are easy to recognize as they are all pink. They leave from area B at the Station and runs every 10 minute Monday-Friday from 9-17, and Saturdays from 11-16. To get to OFF you have to get off at Pantheonsgade across from Café biografen, where most screenings are. See the citybus route here.
At OFF we adhere to the health authorities’ guidelines with regard to Covid-19, and we take all necessary precautions regarding good hygiene and safety. OFF takes all employees’ and guests’ health and safety very seriously, and we wish for you to feel safe in case you pay us a visit in week 35.
Therefore, OFF20 was a little different compared to previous years. In order for festival guests to be able to keep appropriate social distance at the screening venues, only every second seat was sold, which meant that there was fewer tickets than usual available for the screenings, and hence the programmes might sold out faster.
Extra actions at OFF20:
- Valid tickets was mandatory for all programmes at the festival.
- All of our big outdoor events, receptions and parties was cancelled.
- All venues was cleaned continuously throughout the week, and hand sanitizer was available at all relevant spots.
- Only every other seat was sold – and all of our screenings complied with the social distancing guidelines.
- We encouraged everyone to familiarize themselves with the health authorities’ guidelines, and naturally to stay home in case you experienced any symptoms whatsoever.
Furthermore, as a new initiative at OFF20, we created a digital platform so that no matter your health situation or geographical whereabouts, you was able to get access to OFF’s amazing films. Check it out here.
We ask that all directors or other film representatives participate in Q&A’s after the screenings of their film. Please reserve tickets for the screenings that you are able to attend. Use the code: Free
Please make yourself known to the moderator of the screening. They are wearing red t-shirts and an OFF nametag.
