About Docaviv

Docaviv - NPO for promotion of documentary Film is the organizer of the Docaviv International Film Festival and the Docaviv Galilee Festival.

The Docaviv International Film Festival

Docaviv International Documentary Film Festival is the only film festival in Israel dedicated exclusively to documentary cinema and is Tel Aviv's largest film festival. About 90 Israeli and international documentaries are presented during the festival. A vibrant Doc loving audience of over 35,000 people flocked the festival halls during the previous editions.

The competitive section of the program has become one of its main focal points. Every year the festival runs an international competition which presents recent innovative and compelling documentaries, an Israeli competition that includes the finest vintage of local Documentary filmmaking community.

The festival hosts film professionals from Israel and abroad and facilitates professional networking and audience interaction. Alongside dozens of screenings, the festival holds discussion panels, special events, artists' master classes, and workshops attended by the festival's international guests, members of the Israeli film industry, and members of the public.

The 16th Docaviv International Film Festival will take place on May 8-17, 2014 at Tel Aviv.

Docaviv Galilee Film Festival

In 2009 Docaviv NPO decided to further its activities and launched Docaviv Galilee – a documentary film festival in Ma'alot Tarshicha.

Docaviv Galilee wishes to promote documentary filmmaking and expose it to new audiences, to create a stage for unique meetings between viewers and filmmakers, and to nurture local documentary creation by youth, students, and established filmmakers.

Since its foundation, Docaviv Galilee has been leading a dialog between Israeli documentarists and the multifaceted population of the Galilee, and has been promoting a discussion around Israel's social, cultural, and geographical periphery.

The 5th Docaviv Galilee Festival will take place on November 12-16, 2013, at Ma'alot Tarshicha.
