The IDA Documentary Awards is the world's most prestigious event dedicated to the documentary genre, celebrating the best nonfiction films and programs of the year.
The 32nd Annual IDA Documentary Awards takes place on Friday, December 9, 2016 at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. Tickets for the Paramount Theater main theater are $500. We have added a new element to this year's Awards - the “Pink Ticket Party." This party will view the ceremony in the Sherry Lansing Theater at Paramount Studios. It also includes the pre and post ceremony receptions, an interactive experience with the main theater during the ceremony, and access to a hosted wine/beer bar during the ceremony. Prices for these tickets are $250. IDA members receive 20% off.
The Awards is IDA’s largest annual fundraiser, and while attendees can choose to purchase the ticket that best suits their budget, we encourage you to consider purchasing a higher priced ticket if you are able.
