Visions du Réel, the Festival International de cinéma will be held from 21 to 29 April 2017 in Nyon, Switzerland. For film professionals will be organized a wide industry programme, including for example the id w / interactive documentary workshop that seeks to support audio-visual professionals in the development of interactive documentaries and nonfiction transmedia projects. Thanks to the cooperation with IDF, the i dw Award was given to the best Doc Tank project during the East Doc Platform 2017. The winning transmedia project Teslafy.Me received a full scholarship, covering tuition fees, subsistence and travel expenses to attend the id workshop in Nyon.

Media Library, which is the part of the overall industry programme of Doc Outlook – International Market (DOCM), selects and promotes films at every stage of their development and offers a key networking platform for professionals from all around the world.
