After COVID hiatus, documentary film festival returns north

DocAviv Galilee, the northern region’s documentary film festival, returns to the Ma’alot-Tarshiha cinemas with its thirteenth edition, from November 3-6.

“It’s just important,” said festival director Galia Bador. “We are doing it whatever happens. If not through the door, then through the window. “

Last year, the annual festival was screened online, and the pandemic prevented in-person screenings. This year, five films will be screened in digital format for those who prefer to stay away from the crowds, but most of the festival’s events will take place indoors and in person.

The festival includes a total of 31 local and international documentaries, including some that were screened at DocAviv in Tel Aviv, as well as at the Jerusalem and Haifa film festivals.

There are many films related to the environment and nature, a large number of films focused on cooking, tours and films that will be screened with their directors present.

“We are always looking for a few different things,” Bador said. “We want the latest and greatest films so that northern moviegoers don’t miss out. That means original Israeli films that have yet to be screened, and all Israeli films and documentaries that are meaningful to the local community. “

The festival opens with its regular premiere celebrating local talent, Project Knafayim (Wings). The opening event features four films by Ma’alot Tarshiha filmmakers, made at the DocAviv Galilee Film Workshop and Apter Barrer Art Center and with the support of the Rabinovich Foundation. The workshop is guided by filmmakers Yael Kipper and Ronen Zaretzky.

“Born to Be Free”, an event with films by and about people with disabilities, will be screened at the Ma’arag Center in Kfar Vradim.

The festival will also host a seminar for film students, which will be held in association with the Israel Documentary Filmmakers Forum, along with film screenings for students of Ma’alot-Tarshiha schools, from primary to primary. high school.
