Already Looking To The Future

Monday, December 4----With the 19th edition of the International Documentary Filmfestival Amsterdam (IDFA) just ending on Sunday night, the organizers have already begun to strategize for next year's 20th anniversary.

Documentary Subsidy Cutbacks In The Netherlands

The Face Of Iraq At IDFA

Saturday, December 2-----It certainly makes logical sense that one of the world’s largest documentary film festivals would have a number of films that focused on the troubles in Iraq, but the sheer volume of them has been, at least for this journalist, an eye-opening and yet terribly difficult experience. IDFA has spared no one with some excellent and heart-rending films that continue to haunt. The films dealing with the Iraq war, at least the ones that I’ve seen, fall into two distinct ...

Explosion of Documentary-Only Film Festivals
