IDFA Meets Omroep Zwart

    Omroep Zwart engages in online discussions with filmmakers to share urgent stories and new perspectives. Featuring: The Perfect Picture, I Don’t Feel at Home Anywhere Anymore, and Ndagukunda déjà.

    IDFA Meets is IDFA's new event series for an emerging generation of documentary viewers. Each time from a different location, with a different Amsterdam collaborator, and always with special side programming: from panel talks to performances and exhibitions. At each event, a creative documentary film serves as the basis for an open discussion. The New Originals, Patta, and Omroep Zwart will engage in an online discussion with filmmakers to share urgent stories and unheard perspectives.

    IDFA Meets is made possible by VSBfondsDemocracy and Media Foundation, and City of Amsterdam
