What is INPUT?

INPUT is the annual documentary and television festival organised by the the NOS (Dutch Broadcasting Foundation) and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.

The annual INPUT event is designed to inspire public broadcast journalists and program makers by confronting them with new or striking productions from their own field. It provides a platform to stimulate the development of new and innovative programs. The festival brings together people from various broadcasting organizations as well as makers of selected films, providing them with the opportunity to discuss their processes and choices. INPUT also provides the perfect opportunity for professionals to interact and network with international colleagues.

INPUT is an industry-only festival, from more than 300 visitors in 2010 to 500+ visitors last year.  This success was achieved thanks to both the wide variety of genres available in the different screening rooms, and the interactive element created by the (video) debates and active use of social media such as Twitter.

At the 13th edition of the INPUT festival in April 2018 we hope to equal, if not exceed, the previous visitor numbers, thanks to the especially interesting range of films selected for this edition. INPUT is a film festival featuring inspirational documentaries, short films and fiction from all over the world. Discussions with program makers, masterclasses provide the opportunity to share knowledge and new ideas. For program makers, television journalists, documentary makers, broadcast managers, producers and film academy students.
