Documentary filmmaker Errol Morris will present IDFA Top 10

Errol Morris for IDFADocumentary filmmaker Errol Morris will be putting together this year’s IDFA Top 10, an honour previously bestowed upon acclaimed directors such as Victor Kassakovsky, Werner Herzog and Steve James.

Morris, known for films such as The Thin Blue Line, A Brief History of Time, Tabloid and The Unknown Known, is considered one of the most important documentary directors of our time. His creative narratives, strong line of questioning and cinematic approach to documentary making have earned him many awards, including an Oscar for The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara in  2003.

This is the reason the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) has asked him to present his top 10 films. Alongside of this the festival will be screening a retrospective of Morris’ own work.

Errol Morris will also be attending the festival as a guest of IDFA and talk about his work and his choices for the Top 10 in a masterclass.

The 28th IDFA will take place from 18 to 29 November in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
