Alongside Hot Docs, the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam is considered the most important documentary festival worldwide and in terms of visitors, IDFA is the largest festival in the world.

Docs for Sale, the documentary market for buyers and sellers, takes place during IDFA and attracts a large group of international documentary professionals.
New Zealand films which have screened at IDFA include The Last Dogs of Winter, Brother Number One, Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls, Forgotten Silver and Hip Hop-eration.
