The Israeli Documentary Filmmakers Forum is a non profit organization working to
promote the documentary genre. With over 450 members,the Forum's activity focuses
on two aspects:
the promotion of the genre and personal promotion of the Forum's members.

To promote this special genre, the Forum keeps a constant dialog with funds,
broadcasting bodies, regulation and legislation bodies.

The Forum has and is taking a significant and active part in all issues and struggles
that currently face Israeli filmmakers.

Among the annual projects:

"The Israeli Documentary Film Competition": the competition, celebrating 5 years
to its foundation by the forum,    is the main stage for recognition of filmmakers and their
films and is a source of pride for those who care about Israeli documentary creation.

An annual catalog: the catalog's main objective is promoting Israeli documentary film in
Israel and abroad. The catalog is marketed to culture attaches in about 100 Israeli
embassies world wide (in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs).

 The Forum works and collaborates with the most important film festivals in Israel
(DocAviv, Haifa, Jerusalem and more)

We are working these days on an online documentary magazine and more…

 Personal promotion for Filmmakers:
The forum organizes workshops and professional conferences for its members

Two foreign guests participated: Nick Broomfield and Erik Gandini.

"Applying to CoPro" workshop: was held in Tel Aviv on December 2009. The objective was
to enlarge the circle of applicants to CoPro and the workshop focused on the written

festive screenings and more is sent at least once a week.
