Exploring documentary storytellling in the age of the interface
DocLab is IDFA's program for new media, showcasing the best interactive non-fiction storytelling and exploring how the digital revolution is reshaping documentary art. Through an annual exhibition, the Interactive Conference and a series of Live Cinema Events, DocLab also explores the borders between our physical and virtual realities and unravels today's digital world.
During IDFA 2017, DocLab presented two competition programs - the IDFA DocLab Competition for Digital Storytelling and the IDFA DocLab Competition for Immersive Non-Fiction - as well as the focus program Uncharted Rituals.
DocLab is made possible by the Ministry of Finance The Netherlands, The Netherlands Film Fund, Mondriaan Fund, Flemish Arts Centre De Brakke Grond and Diversion, ARTE, National Film Board of Canada, Flemish Audiovisual Fund and Sound and Vision.
