Docs on the Spot

HOT SPOT FOR DOCS: Docu Festivals Calling / Ones to  watch / Docu Fests Highlights


Extensive IDFA Talks program


During the upcoming festival, IDFA is organizing a large number of Talks to accompany its film program, giving unique insights into the makers’ backgrounds and the stories behind the films. These Talks are divided into three categories. Five Filmmaker Talks will delve deep into a specific filmmaker's body of work (including the Master Talk with Jonathan Harris). Over fifty Doc Talks will present in-depth conversations with makers and a well-known moderator following film screenings.

For the festival's professional guests, a total of twenty Industry Talks and Industry Sessions will deal with the latest developments in the documentary industry. Check out our website for more information on the complete industry program during IDFA 2017 or to download or browse the Program Guide.

Producers Network

At the newly introduced IDFA Producers Network, producers from all over the world can meet up and learn more about co-production possibilities in various countries through a series of round table sessions. The event takes place on Saturday, November 18 from 15:00-17:00. Producers coming to IDFA are welcome to join, upon registration at the Industry Desk.

Expert Meetings

On November 22, IDFA is organizing two dedicated programs on subjects close to the festival's heart. On the occasion of the return of the IDFA Competition for Short Documentary, a day-long industry program will focus on short-form documentaries. A second program will focus on children’s documentaries, encouraging film professionals in the documentary industry to support and make films for a young audience.

All accredited IDFA guests can apply for the workshop, in which renowned filmmaker and producer Jos de Putter and rising star of documentary filmmaking Reber Dosky will discuss proposals entered by the attendees.
