IDFA DocLab is op zoek naar interactieve en nieuwe media projecten voor het jaarlijkse Competition for Digital Documentary Storytelling (deadline 1 augustus 2011).
IDFA DocLab is a unique festival program within IDFA, showcasing interactive webdocs and other new forms of digital storytelling that expand the documentary genre beyond linear filmmaking. Selected projects are presented online, as well as during live cinema events, exhibitions, workshops and industry panels.

Projects that previously premiered at IDFA DocLab include GazaSderot, Highrise/OutMyWindow,Welcome to Pine Point, PrisonValley, From Zero, Young Me Now Me, and many others.
