The LIDF is a qualifying film festival for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Recipients of the festival’s prize in the Documentary Short Subject category will qualify for consideration at the Annual Academy Awards® (OSCAR®) without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.
  • Documentary Feature length and Short films (less than 40min) are accepted.
  • Animation and experimental work also accepted.


Among the new initiatives to be unveiled are:
• LIDF Touring Festival
• Educational Resources Film Catalogue
• A ‘Conversation’ page for filmmaker on the LIDF web-site. Useful for promotion of current and future projects – including crowd-funding options
• Ideas Exchange
