IDFA REVEALS ENTIRE PROGRAM, FEATURES SIX POLISH FILMS
The more you have, the more you want. The organisers of one of the most important documentary film festivals in the world are perfectly aware of it. The last, concluding part of IDFA's program has been announced just now. Once again, there's no shortage of Polish films.
The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam – IDFA is the largest and one of the most important documentary film festivals in the world. Every year it brings more than 280,000 viewers, including 3000 guests from the documentary industry, and the films shown at IDFA often later become festival favourites. This year, IDFA will be held from 9 to 20 November.
The first part of this year's program revealed about two Polish films being included in the Best of Fests selection, which presents the best documentaries of the passing year. We wrote about it here. Meanwhile, two more titles from Poland have appeared in the selection: The Pawnshop by Łukasz Kowalski and the Polish-German-Iranian co-production Subtotals directed by Mohammadrez Farzad.
Luminous, which is one of the festival's most courageous and original selections, will include Hanka Nobis' Polish Prayers. During Focus: Playing Reality, we'll get to see Paweł Łoziński's earlier documentary – the well-known and award-winning You Have No Idea How Much I Love You.
All titles presented at this year's festival can be found here.
