On this page, you can find all practical information about the submission of your documentary film for the next festival edition. To submit a performance or interactive/immersive project, please refer to our project submission page.
The deadlines for all film submissions for IDFA 2021 are May 1 and July 15.
To complete the submission process, it is required to fill out our online entry form and complete payment of the entry fee. If the main country (or countries) of production is on the IBF country list, your entry is eligible for a fee waiver, which can be requested by writing to email@example.com.
Please note that performances and interactive/immersive new media projects have a submission deadline of July 1, 2021.

To all filmmakers: If your film is selected, we encourage you to provide more accessible film formats when possible. Your contact at the Program department will get in touch about whether you have a version available with English subtitles, closed captions, and/or audio descriptions. For more information, please refer to the closed captions and audio descriptions guidelines from the Audiovisual Accessibility Foundation (SAVT), which IDFA has partnered with since 2019. If your film is selected and you haven’t been able to produce these files yet, SAVT can help you get started.
