IDFA in 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 9 to 20 November in Amsterdam.
IDFA stands for the power of creative documentary. Documentaries that can connect, inspire and excite. Documentaries that expand the view of ourselves, the environment and the world around us. Documentaries that in their form dare to go beyond beaten paths and existing expectations.
During IDFA, you will see daily screenings of documentaries at ITA. Events such as IDFA Awards and Best of IDFA also take place at our theatre. We will also present two productions during the festival: Granma. Trombones from Havana by Rimini Protokoll and ITA on screen: La Reprise. Histoire(s) du Théâtre (I) by Milo Rau.
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.
