Once again, the cream of the crop of the international documentary world gathered in Amsterdam for the festival. IDFA had a fantastic year, with preliminary numbers showing over 250,000 tickets sold, up from approximately 220,000 last year. Numbers at IDFA Forum and Docs for Sale reach peak heights, as well.
