IDFA DocLab for Professionals

    View the DocLab Industry program

    IDFA’s new media program DocLab has been exploring the art of interactive and immersive non-fiction since 2007. Over the years, IDFA DocLab has developed into one of the leading platforms for interactive documentary art and storytelling. Every year, we commission new pieces, initiate collaborations between artists, and offer a wide range of industry activities to support those shaping the landscape of emerging media and art. During the festival we showcase the best new interactive documentary art through two competition programs, a physical exhibition, and a series of experimental live events to present undefined art forms to a wider audience.

    DocLab is made possible by the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands, CLICKNL, The Netherlands Film Fund, Google, ARTE, Diversion, Flemish Arts Centre De Brakke Grond and Flanders Audiovisual Fund.

    DocLab research collaborations: MIT Open Doc Lab and The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.
