International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam’ Fund 2014

The IDFA Bertha Fund supports documentary filmmakers (and festivals) in developing countries by offering them financial contributions to complete their projects. The Fund is always looking for new creative documentary projects from these countries, and they can be submitted in the following categories: (1) project development, (2) production, 3) post-production and 4) documentary festivals (to be confirmed in february). Upon selection, we work with the filmmakers to determine which form of assistance and coaching would be the most suitable to their project.

Applications for documentary festivals are not accepted for the February 1 deadline. In March the fund will announce if applications for documentary festivals will be accepted for the May deadline. If accepted, the fund is looking for festivals which make it their goal to promote the documentary film genre and act as a meeting place for local filmmakers and audiences.

What is a creative documentary?
Creative documentaries are films that are interesting from a stylistic point of view, or are particularly innovative, relevant to social issues and successfully manage to communicate with their audiences. The creative documentary is an art form, which means that the documentary filmmaker is an artist, not a journalist. Like reportage, documentaries provide insight into the world around us, but they are also characterized by artistic qualities: innovation, originality, professional skill, expressiveness and cultural/historical value. The fund is not dedicated to documentaries about art forms (applied arts or portraits about artists), cultural heritage and cultural traditions.

Applications can be submitted in the following categories:
  • Project development: A contribution for project development can be spent on research and on the development of a script and/or on the production of a trailer. It must be spent in a developing country. The maximum contribution for project development is €5,000. (You are allowed to include 1 DVD of your previous work if it is relevant to the project.)
  • Production: A contribution for production can be spent on all forms of production, but it must be spent in a developing country. The maximum contribution for this category is €17,500.
  • Post-production: A contribution for post-production can be spent on all forms of post-production, but it must be spent in a developing country. The maximum contribution for this category is €17,500.
  • Other activities (Documentary festivals): Please note that applications for this category are unsure for 2014. Applications can not be submitted for the February deadline. In March the fund will announce if applications will be accepted for the May deadline. (A contribution for a documentary festival can be spent on all forms of festival organization, but it must be spent in a developing country. The maximum contribution for this category is €15,000.)
