The Doc Aviv documentary festival (April 21-26) is to host a market for documentary projects looking for co-producers and broadcaster partners.

The event's organisers, local documentary body the Israeli Documentary Forum (IDF), have selected 26 out of 87 proposed projects. The successful titles will be showcased to international broadcasters including the BBC, Arte and ZDF and TV-Ontario. The projects will also be invited to Tel Aviv for the Doc Aviv festival.

The IDF aims to secure support from local broadcasters for the initiative in order to promote Israeli fare overseas.
