Company Name: Doc Edge

Type: Film Festival

Company Description: I am the Co-founder and director of Doc Edge International Documentary Film festival, an Academy Award qualifying documentary film festival and the leading documentary festival in Asia Pacific region. We are also the first Asia Pacific film festival to pivot and deliver the event as an online festival in response to Covid-19.

In addition, we also run Doc Edge Forum, an industry event which holds master classes, panels, key note master classes, pitching forum and rough cuts lab. This was also delivered online and open to participants from all over the world. We also run a Schools Programme, an interactive immersive exhibition and Film Fund for films made for young adults as well as undertake advocacy for documentary film-making,

Doc Edge is keen to hear from filmmakers with completed films as well as those with projects that may work as international coproductions with New Zealand. NZ and Israel has a coproduction treaty.

I am also a filmmaker of award winning documentary and fiction narrative films. My last feature film played in many film festivals internationally winning numerous awards and it has screened in Israel called Hip Hop-eration.
