While the festival started on a sad note, with the passing of Docaviv's legendary founder, filmmaker Ilana Sur, on the opening day, the event has been a success with 45,000 tickets to online screenings sold by Wednesday night, as well as the four drive-in screenings. For this reason, organisers have decided to extend the festival with a selection of films until the end of the month. The list of films which will be available will be announced on the festival’s website on Sunday, 13 September.
