Dispatches from IDFA

By Tom White

Documentary Editor Tom White has been at in Amsterdam, at IDFA, over the past few days, serving on one jury for two competitions: the Silver Wolf, for mid-length docs; and the Silver Cub, for short docs. The Queen Mother of all doc fests, IDFA is unspooling over 300 films over a ten-day period; Tom and his fellow jurors are reviewing 31 of those-in five days. He'll be filling us in on his adventures in The Netherlands this week.
