The lowa City International Documentary Film Festival, known for showcasing innovative nonfiction films, is set to make a highly anticipated return after a two-year hiatus. This festival is a platform for both emerging and established filmmakers to share their experimental documentaries with audiences from across the United States and beyond. The lineup promises a diverse selection of thought-provoking films that push the boundaries of traditional storytelling and challenge viewers to see the world from new perspectives. 

The festival is organized by a team of University of Iowa students. Throughout the event, we will be offering diverse film screenings, hosting various events, arranging accommodations for filmmakers, and providing additional perks for winners and judges. Due to the fact that we have limited funds, we need your help in order to bring back this beloved community film festival. In order to make this happen, we would love for you to be a part of it as much as we are! 

By donating to our cause, you will not only be supporting the growth and success of our festival but also investing in the future of independent filmmaking. Join us in shaping the landscape of cinema and making a lasting impact on the world of film– every dollar counts! Thank you for considering supporting our film festival.
