Festival info for filmmakers & film professionals

    The 33rd edition of IDFA takes place November 18 to December 6, 2020, with IDFA's markets kicking off early on November 16. Check this page for all up-to-date festival information for filmmakers and industry professionals.

    This year, IDFA invites international guests to experience the festival online. As much as we would like to receive you in person, the COVID-19 situation in Amsterdam has forced us to adapt. We have ensured that as an international professional, you are able to experience IDFA entirely online this year. IDFA Forum, Docs for Sale, IDFAcademy, and the Industry Program are completely online. The film and new media program have a hybrid form, however, all on-site programming will be geared towards local audiences in Amsterdam.

    As we understand the importance for filmmakers being present at their premieres, we'll do our utmost to accommodate filmmakers in a safe way so they can still attend their premieres and celebrate the art of documentary film with our audiences.

    Visit the Attending IDFA page for more information about attending the festival.
