Discover DocLab's annual competitions for immersive/interactive works
IDFA DocLab's competition programs present the best immersive and interactive works at the festival, judged by an international jury.
In 2021, IDFA DocLab celebrates its 15th edition, taking this anniversary as a point of departure to explore how the field has evolved across immersive art, digital art, and interdisciplinary installations and performances. The new DocLab competitions presented will reflect these developments in the field in tandem with a focus on artistic excellence.
