Budapest International Documentary Festival, On Until 27 Sept
In 2015, Budapest International Documentary Festival will have its second edition. After the great reviews and feedback of the first session, the main concept remains unchanged: BIDF is an international competition for creative documentaries from all over the world without thematic restriction, with money awards and an international jury.

We will invite all directors with films in competition (approximately 40 films) in order to provide our audience a unique and truly unforgettable experience: not simply a screening, but a festival with QandA sessions.

Hundreds and hundreds of great films were submitted for the 2nd Budapest International Documentary Festival. After months of work we had the opportunity to chose from wonderful films and finally select the 36 films that best fit this year’s festival.

Apart from the 4 Hungarian films BIDF will bring documentaries to Budapest from all over the world from Scotland to the Congo, from India to Argentina, giving exclusive insight to intimate family dramas and negotiations defining world-politics.
