Due to the current pandemic, the 22nd edition of Docaviv – The Tel Aviv International Documentary Film Festival will be postponed. Given the obstacles facing the world during this time, we feel there is no other choice. The health and safety of our audiences, filmmakers, staff, volunteers, and supporters is of the utmost importance.
Despite the disappointment, we are pleased to announce new tentative dates for the festival. In optimistic anticipation of better days ahead, Docaviv 2020 will be held September 3rd to 12th. We aim to move forward not with panic or sadness, but with hope for the future. Our team is working around the clock to review, reschedule, and reinvent.
We are following in the footsteps of many film festivals around the world who have been forced to cancel or postpone as well. The documentary industry is one that knows how to weather hardships and understands that great beauty, art, and storytelling often come as a direct result of what we endure. We look forward to the day that our community can reconvene in celebration of great filmmaking.
