About CPH:LAB

CPH:LAB is CPH:DOX’s talent development programme that encourages creative risk taking, celebrates raw talent, facilitates collaboration across borders and business sectors and supports visionaries to push the existing boundaries of documentary filmmaking.

The lab is conceived as an international incubator for documentary projects that seek to explore the potential of digital technologies, where interactivity supports the creation of a narrative universe that advances new visions of what a documentary can be in a digital age. 

The COVID-19 crisis has brought an unprecedented seismic shift to the media landscape. It has been a catalyst not only for new ways of working but also for reflections on what kind of world we would like to live in. As a response to this, CPH:LAB 2020/2021 will solicit submissions on the specific subject of Protopia, under the banner “Another World Is Possible”. While utopia describes an ideal state, perfect and unrealistic, and dystopia is a non-ideal state, unhealthy and devolving, protopia is a proactive bridge from our current state to an improved, rather than a perfect society.

HOW TO CPH:LAB

CPH:LAB is a continuous online development and production lab taking place over four months, from mid-September 2020 to mid-January 2021 and at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen from March 23-25, 2021 (if allowed). During this period the work will be created with input from the Head of Studies and an expanded team of international mentors, giving participants new tasks and challenges each week, while using new technical platforms and methodologies suitable for driving the process forward in a digital environment.

It will welcome 6 immersive or interactive creative documentary projects developed by around 15 emerging and established storytellers from all over Europe and beyond.

At the end of the programme the works will premiere for both the physical and digital editions of the Inter:Active Exhibition at CPH:DOX in March 2021.

The development will deal with platform or platforms, story development, remote production, social engagement, impact, roll-out and distribution digitally as well as physically.

In order to apply, you have to be fully available for the online development and production lab as well as during the launch of the work at CPH:DOX 2021. The workshop is free of charge including transportation, accommodation and meals during the workshop in March 2021. 

Submissions are now open and will close on June 28, 2020. Learn more about how to apply by consulting the Rules & Regulations.
