The IDA reaches the documentary filmmaking community—including filmmakers, industry executives and documentary film lovers. Across multiple platforms, the IDA delivers integrated marketing campaigns, offering creative and flexible advertising programs to suit various budget levels.

Event Sponsorship

Supporting the IDA through program and event sponsorship not only gets your brand in front of the documentary filmmaking community—it also reflects a strong commitment to sustaining the vitality of documentary film and the filmmakers.

Institutional Giving

Institutional Giving allows the IDA to serve our documentary community and filmmakers. We work closely with each foundation to connect it to IDA activities that reflect shared values and priorities. Through these efforts, we have built a community of funders who share our commitment to cultivating original voices in documentary film, and storytelling, and to building a stronger, more equitable field. Institutional grants provide stability for existing programs and seed the launch of new initiatives.
