Jury Report | IDFA DocLab Competition 2015
Winners of the IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling and IDFA DocLab Immersive Non-Fiction Award announced at IDFA’s 28th award ceremony.
We believe our two chosen projects are exemplary for this trend.IDFA DocLab Immersive Non-Fiction Award
For this new award, we chose a project that has simplicity at its heart. The tools used for this project are indeed state of the art: the real world and human imagination. At it’s core it has an urgent question: how do we learn to live together, to trust people who are different from us? The winner awkwardly challenges us with the idea that we can be characters in other people’s lives. The winner of the IDFA DocLab Immersive Non-Fiction Award is Someone Else by Ant Hampton.IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling
Our choice for the IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling gives the user the chance of coloring their experience and connecting the dots with their imagination. In a time when we can access anything online, it felt welcomed to hear a personal story, a point of view. Poetry, contemplation and emotions are pieces of a puzzle that fall naturally into place in this work. The winner of the IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling is Drawing Room bij Jan Rothuizen and Sara Kolster.
