The 31st International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam kicks off in less than one week, and Doc/Fest is proud to see many Doc/Fest Alumni, Films & MeetMarket projects presented at IDFA in November.
The Doc/Fest team is looking forward to getting stuck into the IDFA programme and having a good ol' chat (or drink); not to mention we're teaming up with Tribeca Film Institute to host our legendary IDFA Partij on 20 Nov. We hope to see you there!
