Supported filmmakers at IDFA 2023

With fifteen films included in IDFA’s festival program and ten projects participating in IDFA’s Markets, an exceptional number of filmmakers supported by the IDFA Bertha Fund and IDFA’s talent development programs will attend this year’s edition of the festival.

Below, you can find an overview of all these films, projects, and people you can meet at IDFA 2023.

Films and projects at IDFA

This year’s festival opens with A Picture to Remember, a film supported by both training and funding initiatives of IDFA. The project received a production grant in the special IBF Classic Ukraine round in 2022, followed by an IBF Europe Minority Co-production grant in 2023. IDFA welcomed director Olga Chernykh and editor Katerzyna Boniecka to Amsterdam for the IDFA Project Space 2023 program, which supported them in taking the project from a rough-cut stage to completion. 

In addition to this film, several other projects supported by IDFA’s range of funding schemes and talent development workshops can be found below.
