For the past nine years, CPH:LAB has focused on bringing together emerging filmmakers and connecting them with resources to produce new films. In 2017 CPH:LAB will transcend the limits of traditional film and documentary practices by developing projects that harness the potential of new media, technologies, and distribution methods. 6 teams from across and beyond Europe will be invited to come to Copenhagen for 10 days during the CPH:DOX festival (16-26 March, 2017), where they will form interdisciplinary tandems and create projects to continue after the festival. Each participant team will include at least one filmmaker and one technologist.

Cinemathon has particapated in the re-design of the new CPH:LAB
and will be involved in the curation of the teams.
