COVID-19 update: Tel Aviv’s Docaviv 2020 postponed from May to September

Tel Aviv’s international documentary film festival Docaviv postponed due to coronavirus


The 22nd edition of the Academy Award qualifying documentary film festival, which was supposed to run May 21 - 30, has been pushed back to September


“Given the obstacles the world is facing during this time, we feel there is no other choice than to postpone this year’s festival. The health and safety of our audiences, filmmakers, staff, volunteers, and supporters is of the utmost importance,” Docaviv’s Artistic Director Karin Rywkind Segal comments.


“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 3 - 12. 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,” she concludes.


Festival Director Galia Bador adds: “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.”


About Docaviv

Docaviv is the largest film festival in the city of Tel Aviv, and the only festival in Israel dedicated exclusively to documentary films. It is among the world’s leading documentary festivals, with over 130 new local and international documentaries screened in both competitive and non-competitive sections. The festival also holds several industry events, including one-on-one meetings between Israeli filmmakers and international decision makers, and DOC-LAB-TLV, a rough-cut lab with international mentors.


In 2018, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences listed Docaviv as one of the leading festivals whose winners automatically qualify for Oscar consideration. The winners of the Israeli, International and Short competitions are eligible to compete for an Oscar in the documentary category. In 2019, ‘ADVOCATE’ by Rachel Leah Jones and Philippe Bellaiche won the Howard Gilman Award for Best Israeli Film, Oscar-nominated ‘HONEYLAND’ scooped the award for Best International Film and Martina Scarpelli took home the Best Short Award for ‘EGG’.
