Industry Program

    IDFA for professionals

    During the festival, the Industry Program gathers the world’s documentary community to discuss the evolution of our industry, offer surprising new perspectives, and build long-lasting connections. The extensive program of high-profile talks, presentations, matchmaking, and think tanks runs for six days, annually welcoming some 3,000 documentary filmmakers and professionals.

    Mainstays of the Industry Program include inspiring filmmaker talks in collaboration with IDFA’s Program department, in-depth industry talks and panels, project presentations by international filmmaker delegations, and a few invitation-only sessions to deep dive into critical topics facing today’s industry. Recent speakers have included Gianfranco Rosi, Firouzeh Khosrovani, Jacopo Quadri, Thom Powers (DOC NYC), William Uricchio (MIT), and many others.
