CPH:LAB 2019-2020

RULES & REGULATIONS

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 incubator for documentary projects that seek to explore the potential of digital technologies and advance new visions of what a documentary can be in a digital age. It offers a space for experimentation and collaboration in creative, cross-disciplinary partnerships across film, the creative arts, science, technology and social entrepreneurship.

ELIGIBILITY

CPH:LAB has a natural emphasis on Scandinavia and Europe but is open to projects from independent creatives worldwide seeking to push the envelope in terms of creativity and the use of technology to create an impact on people and society through new ways of documentary storytelling, for new platforms, reaching new audiences.

We welcome projects from more experienced as well as emerging creators.

Projects must be in a development phase seeking to create a first working prototype.

The main criteria for selection will be the artistic quality of the project, the uniqueness of the content, the relevance of the subject matter, the originality of the storytelling format, and the estimated potential for the project to reach audiences internationally.
