CPH:DOX has announced the projects selected for its immersive documentary talent development and training programme, CPH:LAB. They will go through an intense series of on-site and online workshops and mentoring sessions spanning from September 2023 to February 2024, and the teams will be ready to present their prototypes at CPH:DOX 2024, set to take place in Copenhagen from 13-24 March.
The nine projects’ core teams will be working with the head of studies, Mark Atkin, and a slate of internationally renowned mentors. “I am really excited to meet this year’s CPH:LAB cohort and to explore with them new
approaches to what a documentary can be in the digital era,” says Atkin. “The CPH:LAB is a place for experimentation, and we will all be pushing ourselves in directions that are new to us, under the reassuring influence of our inspiring international mentoring team, who will gently ease us outside our comfort zone and hold us while we are there. The results are unpredictable. We expect change. I look forward to sharing with this year’s cohort where we have got to during the CPH:DOX Inter:Active Symposium in March 2024.”
The first residential workshop will take place in October 2023 in Copenhagen, and the project teams will work with mentors from different creative industries: Vassiliki Khonsari, producer and co-founder of the award-winning Brooklyn studio iNK Stories; Emma Roberts, an XR producer from Australia; Sarah Ellis, director of Digital Development for the Royal Shakespeare Company; Mike Robbins, director and producer at the High Road Stories studio in Berlin; and John Andrew Fitzgerald, co-founder of the award-winning creative studio Sensorium.
CPH:LAB’s project line-up deals with a wide range of stories, both personal and collective, local and universal, reflecting the world at large. Focusing on the depth and variety of the immersive documentary genre, the nine projects – bringing together 16 core participants from 15 countries – is curated to point to some of the major issues in current and past world politics, culture, society and technology. Descriptions of all of the projects can be found here.
Earlier CPH:LAB projects include The Pathogen of War by director Yasmin Fedda, selected for a first public preview at the Battersea Arts Centre, as part of Shubbak, the UK’s largest festival of contemporary Arab culture; and Lauren Moffatt’s Local Binaries, shortlisted for the VR Art Prize by the Contemporary Arts Alliance (CAA) Berlin.
