On the first Friday of each month (and other selected days), you can watch premiere films with English subtitles at BIFFEN INTERNATIONAL - a concept targeted at North Jutland's non-Danish audience. On other days, the films are shown in their original language but with Danish subtitles.

Furthermore, Biffen shows a Cinematheque film (classics, cult films, etc.) every Tuesday night and these films are often with English subtitles as well. Programme HERE.

The Cinematheque is part of the Danish Film Institute and has an extensive collection of films that gives today's audiences a chance to experience world cinema spanning from the very beginning of film history to the latest digital releases.


Biffen offers a wide variety of current films from all over the world. The cinema is placed in Aalborg's cultural centre, Nordkraft. Nordkraft offers also music, theatre and art events, as well a range of eateries, a fitness centre and fairs. The former power plant Nordkraft, is now a dynamic and diverse cultural powerhouse. 

Apart from ordinary screenings, you can also experience film festivals, Q&A's with film directors and actors and other events. Biffen is happy to organize screenings for groups of international residents/citizens, associations, organisations or companies. Biffen is an obvious meeting point for international residents in Aalborg and North Jutland with a passion for the cinema.

One screening only with English subtitles!
Finally Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas appear in the same film! With great humour and sharp satire they play in a film about their own industry.
Film director Lola (Cruz) tries to rein two actors with huge egos.
Félix (Banderas) is used to the spotlight only belonging to him, and the radical theater actor, Iván (Oscar Martinez), is only passionate about the true and genuine art. The two rivals are challenged by the intense and uncompromising Lola. Who will be left when filming finally begins...?
Spanish drama/comedy directed by Gastón Duprat and Mariano Cohn.
