IDFA DocLab

IDFA DocLab is the official new media program of IDFA, showcasing new forms of documentary storytelling, digital technology, and media art.

More and more filmmakers are exploring new media and as a result new forms of documentary are rapidly emerging. Since 2008 IDFA DocLab investigates the relationship between these developments and showcases the many new and unexpected forms of documentary storytelling made possible by innovations in digital technology.

In Europe, the program has become a platform for transmedia and multimedia projects, ranging from audio slideshows and web series to interactive webdocs and documentary media art. Every year at IDFA in November, IDFA DocLab presents Live Cinema Events and installations, workshops, and panels. Throughout the year IDFA DocLab organises guest program at other festivals (a.o. SXSW) and maintains an online project archive and blog.
Projects that premiered at IDFA DocLab in the past include GazaSderot and Prison Valley (by Alexandre Brachet / Upian), Welcome to Pine Point and Highrise (produced by Rob McLaughlin / NFB).
