A HUGE Thank You to All Donors to the IDA's End-of-2014 Fund Drive!

Wow. You folks have outdone yourselves.


We are continually taken aback by the amazing generosity of the IDA Family. Every time we’ve asked our community of friends and members to invest in documentary culture by making a tax-deductible donation, they’ve risen to the occasion in greater numbers and with bigger gifts.

Our end-of-2014 fundraiser was no exception. The IDA Family exceeded our wildest expectations, stepping forward with contributions that totaled nearly $26,000. This much- needed and unprecedented support is helping us provide the resources, programs and advocacy all documentarians need to practice their vital art form.

We are speechless.

Thank you so, so much to the following true believers in the power of documentary filmmaking. We couldn’t do it without you, and your votes of confidence mean the world to us.
