AniDox:Lab is Europe's unique workshop dedicated exclusively to the animated documentary genre. It offers talented documentary and animation filmmakers the opportunity to engage and combine their two worlds.
AniDox:Lab is The Animation Workshop’s animation documentary continuous training project, in partnership with the Danish Film Institute, CPH:DOX and DOK Leipzig. It is a laboratory which brings together documentarians and animation film directors, to maximise their artistic capacity and develop their respective projects, for creative research and to form new collaborations. Through a series of three professional seminars in Viborg and Copenhagen, Anidox:Lab gives talented documentary and animation filmmakers the opportunity to engage and combine their two worlds. It tackles both a time-based cinematic approach, as well as digital platforms that allow for multiple stories and timelines. The coaching seminars and collaborative workshops are designed to progress from fine-tuning and initial idea, through narrative development, to a pitch kit and a trailer. Selected participating AniDox:Lab projects will have the opportunity to showcase their work at the prestigious CPH:DOX and DOK Leipzig Festivals.
