DocLab for professionals

    DocLab organizes several industry events for accredited professionals during the festival. Take a look at what's on below.

    Exhibition, Live Events, Summit, Talks, Pitches, Meetings and Social Events ​​

    In addition to the interactive exhibition, a VR Gallery, a planetarium program, live cinema events, the Mocap stage, and various immersive installations and performances, IDFA DocLab has a special new media industry program on offer for accredited guests. During the festival, to disseminate and exchange knowledge, IDFA organizes a few new media focused Industry Talks, a co-production market, consultancies and the R&D Summit.

    These events bring together professionals across different corners of the emerging media field, from digital art, gaming, and immersive XR to physical exhibition, theater, dome projection, and cinema. DocLab Forum is our curated new media market for projects looking for partners and feedback on their artwork that is still being developed. 20 project teams will present their works to curators, distributors, exhibition platforms, funds, and XR producers. At the R&D Summit the interactive and immersive sector comes together to share research, case studies, prototypes and to explore next steps in developing the medium in an event filed with cross-sector expert meetings. All DocLab participants that are looking for input or industry advise can pick the brain of the consulants at the industry hub ITA. This year we are officially launching the Collective Wisdom book from our R&D partner MIT with a meet-the-authors event. Other industry talks to keep an eye out for are: Capturing reality in motion, Co-creation is everywhere but hard to see and New Tech – Manufacturing the truth.

    The events for professionals include networking cocktails, breakfasts, and lunches, to meet fellow industry guests and connect with artists, developers, funders, scientists, and entrepreneurs working in interactive and immersive content.
