A new training program and meeting place for interactive talent.
DocLab Academy is a new training program and meeting place for interactive talent created in collaboration with interdisciplinary arts centre De Brakke Grond, the Netherlands Filmfund, VAF and Mediadesk. The event takes place during IDFA 2014 and offers a unique talent program for 20 digital documentary storytellers from the Netherlands and Belgium.
- How does one tell an documentary story through interactive and immersive media?
- How do successful digital pioneers make use of the freedom offered by the internet, without getting lost in its boundlessness?
- How do they create projects that go beyond technological innovation and manage to touch our emotions?
- How does one finance an interactive documentary, find the right partners, and reach an audience?
DocLab Academy aims to contribute to both the international development of the interactive documentary genre and discover, stimulate and nurture new talents from the low countries by allowing world-renowned artists and experts to share their knowledge with each other and up-and-coming digital documentary storytellers. Participants have access to all events from the DocLab: Immersive Reality program, as well as a number private workshops and networking events.
The participants for 2014 will be announced soon.
DocLab Academy is part of the DocLab: Immersive Reality program. A co-production between IDFA and De Brakke Grond, supported by SCI and AFK.
