Project award-winners heading to IDFA 2018

    Every year, the IDFA team travels to festivals around the world to award the most promising new film projects and meet emerging filmmakers. The winners receive a flight to Amsterdam, hotel stay during the festival, accreditation to IDFAcademy or IDFA Forum, a meeting with a script consultant or sales agent, and the opportunity to meet other film professionals and expand their network at IDFA.

    In 2018, IDFA awarded filmmakers at the following festivals and industry events: DocEdge Kolkata, East Doc Platform, Beirut Cinema Platform, Durban FilmMart, DocMontevideo, Sarajevo Rough Cut Boutique, Docs by the Sea, and CNEX Chinese Doc Forum.
