The Africa Real Collective (ARC) and the Documentary Association of Europe (DAE), in collaboration with the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), present the CP3 (Cross-Continental Connections) IDFA Meet & Greet. This gathering aimed to bring together representatives, delegations and partners from ARC, DAE, and festival attendees for an enriching exchange of ideas and collaboration. 



The event, set in the Vondel French Room at the new IDFA HQ, was a cocktail-style meet-up encouraging free interaction among attendees. Attendees engaged in huddles, discussing key topics outlined for the occasion. Our facilitators, Austin Nyambok (DocA) and Marion Schmidt (DAE) guided these discussions, ensuring a dynamic and animated atmosphere. 



The primary objective was to foster meaningful connections between delegations and organizations supporting the documentary ecosystem. By leveraging thematic questions as conversation starters, the meet and greet aims to enhance the IDFA experience for all participants. The event sought to encourage deeper engagement between delegations and organizations, fostering networking opportunities and collective support within the African and International documentary filmmaking community.
