CPH:LAB is CPH:DOX’s talent development programme that encourages creative risk taking, celebrates raw talent, facilitates collaboration across borders and supports visionaries to push the existing boundaries of documentary storytelling. This edition of the LAB is particularly for emerging storytellers who would like to develop new work addressing the digital natives with quality factual storytelling experiences. 

Over the course of a six-month incubator participants will develop the project with the help of a group of international mentors and tutors.

The lab is conceived as an incubator for projects by  artists keen to explore new forms of expression in factual storytelling and to 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.‍

CPH:LAB is for filmmakers, artists and creative technologists primarily from Europe although it is also open to a limited number of participants from non-European countries.

The training programme runs as a combination of onsite and online workshops and mentoring sessions spanning from September 2023 to March 2024. Up to nine teams will develop their project to the stage where they are able to present it along with an early-stage prototype at CPH:DOX in March 2024 to a specially-invited group of industry leaders before taking it to other international markets and residencies with whom we have strategic partnerships.
