Film Mentors: International - Martijn Te Pas
As the coordinator of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA, www.idfa.nl) program department I am responsible for overseeing all research activities, processing and viewing film festival entries and I select the short films, music films and compile the IDFA Competition for Student Documentary. I have been working for IDFA since 2000.
Every year since 1988, more than 300 international documentaries are screened at IDFA for a huge number of film lovers and professionals. IDFA is unique for its international film program, the variety of genres, its committed program and the many European and world premieres featured each year.
Aside from the festival, IDFA consists of three other components: the IDFA Bertha Fund, the FORUM and the market Docs for Sale (Online).
