IDFA is one of the leading documentary events in the world, the key launch pad for independent documentary films and the ideal meeting place for film professionals. For those who can’t make it to Amsterdam IDFA presents Docs for Sale: the online year-round marketplace that offers a unique catalogue featuring the very newest in carefully selected, high-quality documentaries. Aside from the festival, IDFA consists of three industry components: The IDFA Bertha Fund, The IDFA Forum and Docs for Sale. All of these were established in order to improve the international climate for creative documentaries.
