The call for submissions for performances and interactive/immersive new media projects is closed now. For information about documentary film submissions, please refer to our separate film submission page.
We are open to all sorts of non-fiction artworks that use emerging media to represent reality, including web experiences, digital art, games, audio experiences, immersive experiences (such as VR/AR/MR, social VR and full-dome films), physical installations, live performances, and immersive theater.
We also encourage submissions of performances/live projects that combine documentary film elements with music, theater, dance, and/or emerging media.
Your project submission will be considered for IDFA DocLab, IDFA on Stage, and other program sections that explore different ways of showcasing documentary art.
We can preview interactive/immersive projects on most platforms and devices such as MAC, PC, iOS, Android, Oculus, VIVE, Steam, PlayStation, Xbox, etc. We can also consider projects made for other platforms, devices, and VR/AR headsets. For projects using custom platforms or devices, please specify what’s required in the online entry form.
In case of a performance, live event, installation, or for a platform not specified above, please include visual/written documentation. If applicable, please also include a technical rider or instructions on how to install the project.
