These days, cultural institutions have to justify their existence more than ever before. This means that support from our audience is becoming increasingly important, especially if we are to maintain our position as the largest documentary festival. By supporting IDFA as a Friend, Close Friend or partner, you are helping to make IDFA possible. Thanks to you, the festival can continue to present the very best documentaries with premieres, discussions and debates, experiments, exchanges for professionals, workshops and screenings for schools. You can also be part of the IDFA Bertha Fund, which supports documentary makers in developing countries.
