“It’s not a frequent occurrence that you get to such a place, to try to make an impact, to advocate for creative expression, and to work with others to help make this more and more visible, and more influential in the world today. I’m talking about documentary film at large now, not just about IDFA.” - Orwa Nyrabia in an interview for International Documentary Association
