CPH:LAB is calling for applications!

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. Since 2009 the lab has established itself as a highly acknowledged, ambitious and yet playful laboratory-style talent scheme showing great results.

For the upcoming edition, they are looking for documentary projects and professionals seeking to explore the potential of digital technologies and advance new visions of what a documentary can be in a digital age.

CPH:LAB offers a space for experimentation and collaboration in creative, cross-disciplinary partnerships across film, the creative arts, science, technology and social entrepreneurship.

The selected projects / participants are invited to a 7-day workshop in September/October 2018, will get online mentoring during the fall and will be invited back to present results during CPH:DOX in March 2019.
