An overview of all supported films, projects, and people present at IDFA this year
The IDFA Bertha Fund supported a record number of 35 documentary projects this year through its various grant schemes. In particular, the IDFA Bertha Fund Classic scheme saw a surge of supported projects, with extra funding handed out to more filmmakers than ever before in September 2020.
Seven projects supported by the Fund made it into the festival selection this year, including two in competition.
Besides offering financial support to filmmakers, the Fund sees to it that supported filmmakers can participate in IDFA's industry activities. At IDFA 2020, eight supported projects are selected for the IDFA Forum, and a variety of supported filmmakers will attend IDFAcademy and will be Observers at IDFA Forum. In addition, a selection of films that were supported by the Fund will be available at Docs for Sale.
Below, you can find an overview of all these films, projects, and people you can meet at IDFA 2020.
