Cet article est disponible en anglais.

The International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), which is set to take place from 14-25 November, has announced that 86 films have been added to its programme, and that it is introducing two new sections this year: Luminous and Frontlight. Both consist exclusively of premieres, and so far, 18 titles have been revealed. 

“The films selected for Luminous are character-, plot- or author-driven, immersing the viewer in a cinematographic experience that allows us to understand universal truths through individual stories,” IDFA explains in the press release.

Frontlight, on the other hand, comprises films that tell stories not covered by the mainstream media, or movies that explore familiar stories in greater depth, with an emphasis on social issues of global concern and the journalistic documentary. These include Katja Fedulova's The Patriot (Germany), Ramy A Katz's Cause of Death (Israel), Henry Singer and Rob Miller's The Trial of Ratko Mladić (UK/Norway), and Alex Winter's highly anticipated The Panama Papers (USA/UK), which will be followed by an extended Doc Talk, where Trouw journalist Jan Kleinnijenhuis, who was part of the international investigation team that led to the revelations, will interview the filmmakers.

Finally, the Paradocs section sits at the intersection of film and art, homing in on innovative forms that seek freedom within the documentary genre.
