2022 International Documentary Association (IDA) awards to go virtual, moves to March
Voting for Best Feature and Best Short Categories Extended
One of awards season’s high profile film events in Hollywood, the International Documentary Association (IDA)’s 37th Annual IDA Documentary Awards ceremony will be rescheduled and held online amid rising public health concerns in Los Angeles County and beyond related to COVID-19.
Originally scheduled to be held in-person on Saturday, February 5, 2022, the 2021 IDA Documentary Awards digital ceremony will take place on Friday, March 4, 2022. The free online awards show will celebrate both the year’s top nonfiction films and programs, and celebrate IDA’s 40th year of serving the documentary community. A separate event recognizing IDA’s Awards Honorees will be scheduled later this year. More details are forthcoming about this year’s ceremony – the world’s most prestigious awards event dedicated to the documentary genre.
“The IDA Documentary Awards will convene the global documentary community online to celebrate the role nonfiction storytelling plays in contemporary society and to commemorate the organization’s 40th anniversary,” said Rick Pérez, executive director of IDA. “While so many of us had hoped this event would be held in-person, we now turn our attention to producing an exciting virtual show.”
IDA members are currently viewing the nominated films in the Best Feature and Best Short categories. Voting has been extended to Sunday, February 13, 2022, 11:59 pm PT.
