Jonathan Harris' Top 10

    Each year, a renowned filmmaker gets the chance to present his or her personal documentary Top 10. Internet artist Jonathan Harris will be this year’s IDFA guest of honor who will select his personal top ten. Harris is one of the most significant artists and innovators to emerge in the digital era. He has achieved widespread recognition for projects such as the interactive We Feel Fine, The Whale Hunt and I Love Your Work. 

    This is the first time IDFA’s annual Top 10 will not be compiled by a documentary filmmaker, but an interdisciplinary documentary artist. IDFA will present the world’s first ever retrospective of Harris’ work, and Harris will present his personal Top 10 alongside a Master Talk. The retrospective and the Top 10 will be presented both in cinemas and as part of the IDFA DocLab focus program Uncharted Rituals.

    Made possible by Mondriaan Fund
