Strong UK presence at IDFA 2018

  • Freedom Fields

Naziha Arebi's Freedom Fields

12th November 2018

UK filmmakers will be out in force at IDFA which opens 14 November; this year's edition is screening 23 feature-length and shortform, immersive and live performance pieces across the programme, from the Masters and Best of Fests strands to the various competitive sections.

Among the highlights will be Freedom Fields screening in the Best of Fests - the extraordinary story of the Libyan Women’s football team. We’re thrilled that the director Naziha Arebi is an alumni of our Stories programme with Scottish Documentary Institute; she met her producer Flore Cosquer while attending our workshop back in 2012 – and the rest is history! Naziha and the SDI team will  be there in person.

Doc Society will also be there hosting the Global Impact Producers Assembly, a gathering of over 100 international filmmakers and Impact Producers meeting to share practices, connect with colleagues and learn about the latest impact campaigns around the world.

Held annually in Amsterdam in November, IDFA is one of the leading documentary events in the world. IDFA 2018 will be held 14-25 November. You can look up all the UK films screening at IDFA here.
