In 2019, we reached out to the documentary community to gauge your tools of the trade. The results of the two-part survey yielded both a rich portrait of our community and a robust narrative about the optimal tools for making your best work.

IDA-Supported Doc of the Week

Directed by
Bobbi Jo Hart

The IDA celebrates the last few days of Women's History Month with the film FANNY: The Right to Rock. Fanny blasted glass ceilings of racism and sexism back in the 1960s and 70s, with the lesbian bandmates told they either hide their LBGTQ identity or leave the band. And these feisty women of colour now takes on the stigmas of ageism as well, proving that age is just a number, that brown skin is just a colour, and how true success is defined by embracing our identity and letting go of the limits and expectations we put on ourselves.
