Twelve Polish films to be screened at largest documentary film festival

Twelve Polish documentaries will be shown at this year's IDFA documentary film festival in Amsterdam that started on Wednesday, the Polish Film Institute announced on Thursday.

Traditionally accompanying the main festival will be the IDFA Industry event and its IDFA Forum and Docs for Sale Market film fair, which focuses on the financing, co-production and marketing of documentary films.

The Polish documentaries, including Dominika Łapka's 'Dad You've Never Had,' Katarzyna Warzecha's 'We Have One Heart,' and Maryia Yakimovich's 'Papa,' will be screened during the Docs for Sale Market fair.

This year, the delegation of POLISH DOCS PRO, organised by the Kraków Film Foundation, takes part in the IDFA Industry. Four of the Polish movies to be displayed at the festival will form a special Polish Docs Pro Showcase review.

The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam is the world's largest documentary film festival held annually since 1988 in Amsterdam. Every year, it is attended by over 280,000 guests from the Netherlands and abroad.

The 2020 ceremony, however, will take place online due to the pandemic restrictions and will run until December 6.
