IDFA X ITA
The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) brings another exciting selection of the world's best documentaries to Amsterdam this year. At festival location ITA, immerse yourself in new work by emerging talent and established filmmakers, festival favourites, world premieres and various themed programmes.
IDFA takes place from 8 to 19 November in Amsterdam.
IDFA strives to strengthen the international documentary climate by focusing more than ever on documentary film as an art form. This focus includes documentary films with an original visual language or structure, films that show lesser-known cultures or are filmed from a non-Western perspective, and interactive or immersive documentaries that innovate the field.
IDFA's programme sections reflect the documentary world, which is constantly evolving. From new art forms to established cinematic traditions, the competitions and non-competitive sections offer something for every filmmaker and film lover.
During IDFA, you will see screenings of documentaries at ITA. Events such as IDFA Awards and Best of IDFA also take place at our theatre. We will also present a special production during the festival: THE LINGERING NOW, Our Odyssey II.
