2020 International Photography Festival
Tel Aviv | November 2020

Traveling Festival

These challenging times remind us that photography, art and culture can help people and communities to bond and to enrich our lives with inspiration and healing power.
Following the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, the 8th edition of the International Photography Festival this coming November will feature a unique format.
By taking all the necessary precautions and measures we are creating a new model for the festival, in which most of the exhibitions will be held in the open air accompanied by a rich online program.
For the first time, the festival will be a traveling one, meaning, it will be launched in Tel Aviv and will be travelling to 3-4 peripheral sites /cities around Israel during 2020-2021 for additional exposure, value and affect.
This year’s Festival theme is Transformation

The International Photography Festival, Israel’s largest photography event, will be taking place this year for the eighth time. The festival has long since become a well-established art institution that welcomes thousands of visitors every year.
This year’s festival will present dozens of exhibitions featuring leading photographers from Israel and abroad, as well as performances, video art, music events and more. The festival is the pinnacle of the year for PHOTO IS:RAEL, a non-profit, public benefit company established to fulfill its vision of social outreach, dialogue, research and the highlighting of artistic and social themes through the language of photography.
