The four nominated films screening at IDFA this year are:
This year, IDFA pays special tribute to Mantas Kvedaravičius, director of Mariupolis 2. Kvedaravičius was killed by Russian troops in April 2022 while documenting the Russian invasion of Ukraine. His fiancée managed to escape with the footage, after which Kvedaravičius' film team edited his final, unfinished film. This film is now being screened at IDFA as Mariupolis 2, along with his earlier film Mariupolis, presented as part of a special program by Free Press Unlimited.
The fifth nominated documentary, The Balcony Movie by Paweł Łoziński (Poland), screened at IDFA last year as part of the Masters section.
