The entry of Dutch music documentaries for the IN-EDIT 2019 is closed. Stay tuned for our next edition! We wish luck to the submitters and encourage all filmmakers to keep making their magic and bring new, brilliant and creative music documentaries to our festival!


IN-EDIT Festival NL is the Netherlands’ edition of IN-EDIT, the biggest international music documentary film festival in the world. The Dutch edition counts with international and Dutch music documentaries; and next to the screening of the films, the festival has live performances by matching musicians, Q&A’s with artists and directors, and industry meetings arranged for and by professionals. Our second edition will take place at the Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam, from the 4th to the 7th of April 2019.


In 2003 the first IN-EDIT International Music Documentary Film Festival took place in Barcelona. The festival was born from two passions: the one for music and the one for film. At the moment, IN-EDIT has grown into an international music documentary festival with editions in more than 10 countries.





The national films (produced in the Netherlands) that we select for the festival enter the Audience Award competition in which the audiences give their vote to the films. The film that gets more votes is selected as the winner and the team receives a price of 1000€.

All selected films will enter the IN-EDIT international film archive, which is built with productions from all over the globe, especially from the countries where IN-EDIT festivals take place.
