DocAviv - Tel Aviv International Film Festival

Click To View Video

The 15th edition of the famed film festival features 100 films in four theatres, in addition to outdoor screenings across Tel Aviv.

Israeli documentaries have had great international success, winning prizes and critical praise wherever they go -- "The Gatekeepers," directed by Dror Moreh, and "5 Broken Cameras," directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, got Oscar nominations for 2012.

DocAviv is the annual festival where the latest Israeli documentary films get their world premiere.

The event also features a student competition as well as a "pitching forum" where students who have projects in production can try to pique the interest of professionals from television and cinema.

As one viewer says in this video, "The reason I like documentaries is because they are showing you a story about life and people you don't know that you never see and hear about. Yes, especially about Israeli life."
