IDFA DocLab: Digital Storytelling in the New Media Age

The terms bandied about at IDFA DocLab can make a layman’s head spin. While many of their old-school colleagues are shooting on digital video or – heaven forbid – actual film, the artists at IDFA DocLab employ everything from data visualization to maps to interactive interfaces. For example, last year’s new media showstopper was Katerina Cizek’s “Out My Window,” one of the world’s first 360-degree documentaries, which was installed at the Brakke Grond Theatre and Gallery during the festival and played for two months after.
