Explosion of Documentary-Only Film Festivals

Thursday, November 30----While it is true that most major international film festivals do showcase important documentary films, the explosion of documentary-only film festivals, as evidenced here at the International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA) in Amsterdam, is nothing less than an explosion. With brochures littering the industry areas, it is amazing and heartening to see such a massive public interest in the documentary form.

So, instead of writing a long article, I am simply going to list the ones I've picked up literature about. It is an amazingly diverse list, in terms of geography and scope. A documentary filmmaker could plan an entire year's travels circling the globe, having their film screened at this marathon of documentary festival events. It is yet another sign of the vitality and interest in the non-fiction form, which is truly an international phenomena. I guess the "need to know" is a strong impulse everywhere these days.
