IDFA DocLab Call for Festival Commissions 2023

This open call offers artists working across interactive and immersive media financial support to realize a new work and present it during the upcoming edition of IDFA, taking place November 8–19, 2023. In total, a commissioning budget of €50,000 is made available through the IDFA DocLab R&D Program. The call is open to both experienced artists and new talent from around the world. Our main goals are to support artists who push the boundaries of emerging media and to present our festival audiences with new works that challenge traditional relations between art, reality, and technology.

The application deadline is now closed.

For projects seeking funding above 10k, please consider submitting to our co-financing and co-production market IDFA DocLab Forum (open for submissions June 12 to August 1). 

For finished and fully funded works, we invite you to submit to IDFA 2023 through the festival’s general call for interactive / immersive projects and performances (open for submissions until June 27).
