A unique opportunity to network with leading international professionals and experts who work in this innovative field
For over 15 years, the Forum has given space to documentary projects in the field of new media. Building on this momentum in 2019, IDFA together with IDFA DocLab introduced a new, complete cross-media market called IDFA DocLab Forum, where the projects presented can find their way to new partnerships, receive in-depth feedback, and explore new ways to move forward. The DocLab Forum is open to all sorts of non-fiction artworks in all production and financing stages that use emerging media to represent reality, including web experiences, multimedia journalism, 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.
Our call for IDFA DocLab Forum project submissions is now closed.
IDFA DocLab Forum takes place November 14-16, 2022.
*The R&D Summit (invitation only event) will take place on Sunday November 13, 2022.
IDFA DocLab is supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy of the Netherlands, CLICKNL, Gieskes-Strijbis Fonds, Netherlands Film Fund, Flanders Audiovisual Fund, VIVE, VIVEPORT, A Lab and Special Friends+.
