​The I​sraeli Documentary Filmmakers Forum is a non-profit organization aimed at the support
and promotion of Israeli documentary films and filmmakers.

As such,​ ​we are committed to enhancing the acceptance and impact of the Israeli documentary
genre and its connections to different audiences in Israel and abroad.

The IDFF​ ​maintains​ ​a constant dialog with​ ​film​ ​funds,​ ​broadcasters,​ ​and​ ​regulation and legislation​ ​authorities,
as well as​ ​taking a ​pivotal and active part in all issues and​ ​cultural​ ​struggles​ ​currently facing​ ​Israeli filmmakers.

Today, the number of documentaries produced in Israel each year is unrivalled worldwide, and so is its acceptance
in many pivotal international film circuits and festivals, year after year. It seems that our dynamic, politically charged
existence fits Israeli filmmakers perfectly, spawning original, moving, piercing cinema which currently provides very
important insight into Israeli society.

​As part of our international ​agenda, ​we focus on expanding the outreach of Israeli documentaries worldwide​, and aspire
to create a cultural bridge between different countries, to bring forth a complex discussion surrounding Israeli political and
social issues, ​as well as its diverse heritage. This will hopefully also strengthen the status and acknowledgment of filmmakers
currently working in Israel, as well as their freedom of speech. 

We would be happy to initiate ​cooperation​ with foreign organizations.​ ​​Please feel free to contact us (contact info below).


Among the IDFF's annual projects: 

"Doco Minus 420" conference": a Filmmakers conference in Ein Gedi held in February.
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
application itself, pitching and trailer.

 "Conflict" workshop: with Robert Thirkell, a senior BBC producer; collaboration within
the frame of DocAviv festival.

 A pitching workshop for young Filmmakers: collaboration within the South Film Festival in Sderot.
