CoPro - Documentary and Animation Marketing Foundation has been promoting and marketing the Israeli documentary films outside of Israel since 1999. Its primary goal is to promote collaborations between Israeli filmmakers and their counterparts abroad. Among the projects it cultivated are Academy Award® nominee Five Broken Cameras (2013), National Board of Review Top Five Documentaries Award recipient A Film Unfinished (2010) and many Best Documentary Award winners chosen by the Israeli Film Academy.
