3357 is the number of inventions developed by the Japanese cult figure Dr. Nakamats, the eccentric man who, in his own words, will live for 144 years.

He is the hero of Kaspar Astrup Schröder’s documentary The Invention of Dr. Nakamats, and this is just one of the highlights of Focus- Denmark.

At its 11th edition, TIFF invited 12 Danish films in this year's dedicated section. The partnership developed with the Danish Film Institute will bring the audience a record number of screenings that will be shown also in No Limit, EducaTIFF or 3x3.

Don't miss Martin Zandvliet's A Funny Man, a movie with a glamorous Sixties style, which tells the story of Dirch Passer (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) the comedian whose fast-tracked rise to fame led to disaster and loneliness. Nikolaj Lie Kass was awarded for his role, best actor at Denmark's most important section, Bodil Awards.

The section is completed by another documentary, Ballroom Dancer (directed by Andreas Koefoed & Christian Bonke) about the way the best latino dancer in the world is trying to get back on the dance floor after a 10 years break.
