Film entry for IDFA 2014 is now open

03 April 2014

IDFA had a very successful festival in 2013. Thanks to filmmakers, producers and other film professionals that all make film festivals happen. Every year IDFA greatly appreciates your submission(s), whether you are a first-time filmmaker or an established director. Thus it is with great pleasure we announce that Film Entry for IDFA 2014 is now open!


Again, more than 250 documentaries will be selected, running the gamut from international audience favorites to artistic experiments along 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 welcome you to submit your films or interactive documentaries and other non-fiction forms of digital storytelling for IDFA 2014. The first deadline is May 1. This deadline is for all films completed between August 1, 2013 and April 1, 2014. The last deadline is August 1, for all films finished after April 1, 2014. However, it is important to enter your documentary at the earliest possible moment! IDFA must receive two DVDs or an online screener, a completed IDFA entry form and payment of the €35 entry fee (excl. VAT).


To submit your film, please complete the IDFA Online Entry Form 2014 in MyIDFA. Please see IDFA Regulations 2014 for our submission guidelines and other rules and regulations, and refer to the FAQ if you have any questions.


We look forward to your submission(s)!
