Seriously, though, IDFA is the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam. And, in about a week, I’m headed there. It will be my first time at this festival (arguably Europe’s biggest doc fest), and my first time in Amsterdam. I’m looking forward to it all, even if the weather forecast is rainy and cold. Opening IDFA is a documentary that I’ve had the pleasure of seeing, Sisters in Law. This really great feature has already racked up playdates at Cannes, Toronto, Telluride, and more to come (trust me).
Otherwise, I’ll be watching a lot of new international documentary work and meeting with European film organizations and filmmakers. Check out the festival Web site, to get a sense of what’s going on this year. See you at IDFA!
