In light of the pandemic, we have ensured that international professionals can experience IDFA entirely online. As much as we would like to receive our international guests in person, we would like to invite you to an online festival this year. Nevertheless, you can rightfully expect IDFA to have a lot to offer you. And we do: IDFA Forum, Docs for Sale, IDFAcademy, and the Industry Program will move completely online this year. The film and new media programs will have a hybrid form, however, all on-site screenings and events will be geared towards local audiences in Amsterdam. Read more about what to expect below.
We wish we could see you in Amsterdam, but with your health and safety as top priority, we have prepared an extensive online program for you. As an accredited guest, you can still access films in the program, take part in inspiring talks and debates, network with industry leaders, and lots more.
IDFA will also take place in cinemas in Amsterdam, but mainly for an Amsterdam-based audience. There will be one in-cinema screening per film, with subsequent screenings taking place online.
