IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam) takes places from Nov 20 - Dec 1. IDFA’s international co-financing and co-production market, the IDFA Forum, will take place from 25 to 27 November in the Compagnietheater in Amsterdam. During this market, filmmakers and producers present their documentary projects to commissioning editors from international television stations and other providers of finance, with the aim of completing the financing for their documentary projects. In total, 50 projects have been selected for the upcoming IDFA Forum, and just 17 were selected to be Central Pitches.
Directed by Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickenden, Almost There is due for completion in early 2014. Dan Rybicky will attend the forum with Gordon Quinn and Justine Nagan, executive producers for Kartemquin Films, and Claire Aguilar of ITVS International.
This selection sees Almost There become the third Kartemquin film represented at IDFA 2013. IDFA - the world's largest documentary festival - will also hold the World Premiere of American Arab and the European premiere of The Trials of Muhammad Ali.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
