The Danish Film Institute's New Danish Screen department will see big changes in 2007. Vinca Wiedemann has announced that she will not reapply for her position as head of the division, and will leave when her contract expires on Sept 1, 2007.

The department has more new challenges and new initiatives to face in the coming year. After its success with festival hits including Pernille Fischer Christensen's A Soap and Anders Morgenthaler's animated Princess, the Danish Film Institute has increased the funding for the division by 50% from 2007 to 2010.

The new funds will be used to fund features and also now for documentaries, and in a Danish Film Institute first - video games.
