The screening of JAZZ NIGHTS: A CONFIDENTIAL JOURNEY at the Copenhagen Jazz Film Festival was an amazing event! The audience was incredible, the staff at the film festival could not have been kinder and more supportive, and the theater itself was the absolute PERFECT setting for JAZZ NIGHTS. An intimate, funky, creative space that really helped enhance the mood of the film. The Husets Bio (as the theater is called) is housed in a building that also has one of the city’s best jazz bars (Paradise Jazz), as well as a cafe/bar with more board games from around the world than you could ever possibly name (Bastard Cafe). The entire building captured the energy of creativity and community that JAZZ NIGHTS celebrates.
Here are a few videos of the event itself that were live-streamed at the time via Facebook.
