Digital Lab Africa returns to DISCOP Abidjan!
A year after its launch at DISCOP Abidjan, the reference market for TV content in Africa, Digital Lab Africa returns to Abidjan. From 30 May to 1 June 2017, DLA will showcase the improvements of the five 2016 DLA winners, after a six month incubation period.
DLA will be at DISCOP Abidjan during the three days that last the event. It will be joined by the Ivorian collective Work’D, 2016 DLA winner of the Video Game category. They will give the opportunity to DISCOP attendees to test in exclusivity the beta version of their PC & mobile game Points, developed in partnership with DLA.
Thursday 1 June, from 9:30AM to 10:30AM, Frédéric Chambon, DLA producer, will take the stage to present a Work in Progress on DLA#1 incubation program. On this occasion, Work’D will showcase a presentation of Points and share insights on the first months of their incubation.
This year, DISCOP Abidjan will also host the launch of a Pan-African animation pitch competition organised by the African Animation Network in partnership with the Annecy International Animated Film Festival & Market (MIFA), the DISCOP Markets & DLA, member of the jury. At the end of the competition, the best transmedia project overall will win automatic entry into the DLA#2 pitch competition final at DISCOP Abidjan 2018.
The five DLA 2016 winners incubated by DLA will be showcased at DISCOP Johannesburg, 25-27 October 2017, which will mark the launch of DLA#2 and the next DLA call for projects.
