In collaboration with BFI we have launched an application call for UK documentary producers (film and immersive) with active projects in development to take part in a Group Attendance to the International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam (IDFA) between 16 and 20 November 2024.

Selected delegates will be accredited to IDFA and attendance will allow them to meet potential international funders and partners, to explore co-production opportunities, and to take part in the full range of industry programme activities, including the various networking events. Taking part in this group attendance will help delegates to build relationships with potential partners, funders and buyers, and to establish and progress co-production opportunities.

For selected UK producers, the BFI will cover the following costs:

  • 4 nights’ hotel accommodation with breakfast
  • Return economy train or, where necessary, return economy flight from the UK to Amsterdam, Netherlands, up to a total of £350
  • Airport/rail transfers in Amsterdam

  • Be a UK resident
