Call for talents: IDFAcademy during IDFA 2022

    We are now accepting applications for IDFAcademy during IDFA, offering an intensive four-day program for selected filmmakers during the festival. Emerging documentary directors and producers who have proven their talent on a national scale and are ready to expand their careers internationally can now apply for the popular talent development program. The accreditation deadline is August 25, 2022.

    Taking place from November 10 to 13 in Amsterdam, IDFAcademy participants can expect an enhanced offer of round table discussions, intimate group sessions, case studies, all geared towards learning about the international documentary market, and current trends helping participants develop a broad view of the sector. Other inspirational sessions connected to IDFA’s film selection—such as Filmmaker Talks with well-known directors and leading industry professionals—are also included. Social events will take place daily to encourage new collaborations and networking opportunities. IDFAcademy during IDFA is set to take place in person this year, with activities and meetings happening on-site in Amsterdam. IDFA 2022 will be focussed on physical attendance, as we hope and assume for the moment COVID-19 will not influence our festival (a lot). For those who are unable to travel due to corona restrictions, we will have a limited online offer.

    More info via the accreditation guidelines.
