In response to the new COVID-19 measures, IDFA has unfortunately had to cancel all screenings and festival events today, Sunday November 28, including all DocLab installations, the VR Gallery, and the exhibition due to the newly imposed seating capacity. It is not possible to determine in such a short period of time who is entitled to a seat in the cinemas and handle this in a fair, efficient manner.

Nevertheless, there will be one more online screening today at 17:00 of Where Are We Headed by Ruslan Fedotow, winner of the IDFA Award for Best First Film and the IDFA Award for Best Cinematography.

We will be setting up a refund policy for all tickets purchased for Sunday. If you have a ticket for The Best of IDFA on Sunday, you will also have the option to get a voucher that can be used to attend this program later on, once cinemas fully reopen.

Ticket buyers will be informed about their purchased tickets via email on Wednesday.
