id w - interactive documentary workshop calling for entry


We are looking forward to build a committed group of participants for the 6th edition of the interactive documentary workshop, a five-day residential programme focusing on the development of interactive and transmedia nonfiction projects.

If you have any new project ideas you are working on we will be more than happy to receive them!
During the workshop – featuring lectures, case-studies presentations, project-led group work, personalized coaching and a final pitch session – the key elements of the participants’ projects will be discussed with the trainers, experts, and international decision makers, getting the best advantage in terms of content development, planning of the audience experience, interaction design, funding strategy and professional networking. Participants will thus be accompanied in the definition and refining of a first proof of concept which will be able to be professionally put into further development.
The next edition of the interactive documentary workshop will take place in Nyon from the 14th to the 18th of April, 2018. Among the internationally renowned experts attending the workshop will be: 
John-Paul Marin – SBS Television (AUS)
Sönke Kirchhof – INVR.SPACE (DE)
Alberto Fernández Torres – RTVE Digital (E)
Michael Kaschner – ZDF Digital (DE)
Sandra Gaudenzi – i-Docs (UK)
Lina Srivastava – Creative Impact and Experience Lab (USA)
Karim Ben Khelifa – creator of "The Enemy" (CAN/FR)
…and more to come!

And last but not least, a few goodies to pamper yourself with…
