Demand Hot Docs Respect Cultural Boycott of Israel
"The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA) is disappointed to learn that Hot Docs has partnered with the Israeli organization CoPro Documentary Marketing Foundation, to organize a Canadian delegation to CoPro 13, a forum for international documentary co-production to be held in Tel Aviv from 23-30 May.
CoPro13 is part of a 'rebranding' Israel campaign to take the focus off Israel's treatment of Palestinians and its aggressive wars.
Palestinian civil society has called upon people of conscience throughout the world to take a stand in support of their struggle for freedom and the realization of their inalienable human rights by boycotting Israeli academic and cultural institutions.
We are asking filmmakers, artists, organisations and individuals to write to Hot Docs Executive Director Chris MacDonald at [email protected] and demand that Hot Docs stop working with cultural institutions supported by the Israeli state."
