IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam), the world's largest documentary film festival, is just one week away. We are honored to have three films at the festival, and have compiled the full schedules for each film below.

Usama Alshaibi's American Arab will have its World Premiere at IDFA; Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickenden's Almost There has been selected to deliver a Central Pitch at the 2013 IDFA Forum; and The Trials of Muhammad Ali, directed by Bill Siegel, will have its European Premiere at IDFA.
