IDFA is one of the leading documentary events in the world, offering filmmakers and producers an international platform for their new documentaries. Because so many of the most prominent TV buyers, festival programmers, distributors and sales agents are on hand in Amsterdam each year, the festival is a key launch pad for creative documentary films. Alongside the festival, two documentary markets take place during IDFA: Docs for Sale and the FORUM. Docs for Sale is the leading marketplace for creative documentaries, offering streaming video and network opportunities for buyers and sellers of quality documentaries. The FORUM is IDFA's international co-financing market for documentaries and Europe's largest gathering of commissioning editors, and independent documentary producers. The combination of the festival and the two markets brings together all the key players in the documentary industry, making IDFA the perfect networking opportunity and an event not to be missed.
Screens an array of documentary films + debates, meetings with filmmakers and other industry professionals: November 14 - 25, 2012.

We are proud that even after 25 years, we still receive more and more submissions each year. Unfortunately, due to rising administrative costs, we will now have to require a modest fee for each submission. This fee of €30 plus VAT will cover the processing and viewing of your film.
We truly appreciate your commitment to IDFA, so if you submit your film before June 18 by completing the IDFA 2012 Online Entry Form, we will waive the new fee. After June 18, we will require the fee of €30 plus VAT for all submissions, together with the completed entry form and two DVDs of the work. Please note that the entry fee is non-refundable.
