The FORUM and DocLab
In recent years, critically acclaimed projects such as Gaza/Sderot, Prison Valley, From Zero – People Rebuilding Life after the Emergency, and 24h Berlin have been pitched at the FORUM. Many of these later premiered at DocLab, IDFA’s program for digital documentary storytelling.
Since 2008, IDFA DocLab has been exploring the relationship between documentary filmmaking and new media. The IDFA DocLab Competition for Digital Documentary Storytelling is open to all digital and interactive media that can be used to tell a documentary story. During IDFA, DocLab showcases an annual selection of the best interactive documentaries and other new forms of digital documentary art and storytelling. Projects are presented as installations, live cinema events, and on the IDFA DocLab website, which currently features over 100 projects.
