The last years the Industry Office successfully gathered all of IDFA's existing festival services under one roof and introduced a few new ones to boot. The Industry Office is back this year, offering an extensive program of services, sessions, talks and consultancies to inspire our professional festival guests and to keep them up-to-date on the latest developments in the documentary industry.

    The Industry Office is open to all pass holders to meet up, network and do business. Scroll down and find out more about the services they provide.
