19th Docaviv International Film Festival E-mail

The 19th Docaviv International Film Festival will take place from 11 to 20 May in Tel Aviv. Docaviv, the Tel Aviv International Documentary Film Festival, is the largest film festival in the city, and the only festival in Israel dedicated entirely to documentary films.

Close to 55,000 people are expected to enjoy 110 movies and take part in cinematic happenings at Tel Aviv Port, at Jaffa Port, on select city rooftops, in public gardens, at Habima Square and at other locations. Many of the events are free.

The festival is considered one of the leading documentary film festivals worldwide. Each year, the festival screens over 100 new documentary movies from Israel and around the world, and its programme includes four competitive frameworks: The Israeli Competition, the International Competition, the Depth of Field Competition and the Student Competition.

The festival also features a special tribute programme dedicated to the work of esteemed filmmakers, as well as special programmes dedicated to the themes of music, art, society and others. One of these programmes focuses on alternative documentary cinema and works that make use of new technology – including Virtual Reality – in order to tell stories in new and challenging ways and to shed light on those hidden corners of reality that the cinematic medium cannot always reach.
