10 Filmmakers Can Submit their Films For Free

Opening of Film Submission at the International Documentary Film festival Amsterdam


Thanks to filmmakers, producers and other film professionals, International Documentary Film festival Amsterdam (IDFA) had a very successful festival in 2015. But for us, there is no time to look back or reminisce, as we are already preparing for another great festival this November.

Once again, more than 250 documentaries will be selected, running the gamut from international audience favorites to artistic experiments at the fringes of the genre. But IDFA also showcases interactive documentaries and other non-fiction forms of digital storytelling, games, apps, installations and media art.

We would like to invite you to submit your films or interactive documentaries and other non-fiction forms of digital storytelling for IDFA 2016. Our final deadline for submission is August 1. However, it is important to enter your documentary at the earliest possible moment. IDFA must receive an online screener, a completed IDFA entry form and payment of the €40 entry fee. The first 10 filmmakers submit their films can submit for free using the following code: 58387957.

To submit your film, please complete the IDFA Online Entry Form 2016 in MyIDFA. Please see IDFA Regulations 2016 for our submission guidelines and other rules and regulations, and refer to the FAQ if you have any further questions.

We look forward to your submission(s)!

IDFA Director
