Treasures from the Archives

The Danish Film Institute holds a significant collection of early motion pictures by Denmark's first filmmaker Peter Elfelt (1866-1931). Elfelt shot the first moving images in Denmark in the winter of 1896/97, a 30-second sequence called 'Kørsel med Grønlandske Hunde' ('Driving with Greenland Dogs').

Peter Elfelt is also credited as making the first Danish fiction film, 'Henrettelsen' ('The Execution') in 1903.
