About the Festival

Since its launch in 1988 IDFA has been one of the world’s leading documentary film festivals, dedicated to the exhibition and promotion of ground-breaking creative documentaries. It has consistently served up the latest works of the world’s leading documentarians to a discerning and discriminating audience, and has dedicated itself to the task of devising innovative funding structures to ensure continuing production of top-level documentary films.

This year IDFA celebrates its 25th birthday. This will of course be a time for reflection, but also a time to look forward and to anticipate the future trajectory of the vital and necessary genre to which we have dedicated our working lives. It will also be a time to salute our wonderful audiences and our highly talented, polemical, daring, thought-provoking and visionary filmmakers, without whom there would be no IDFA at all.
