According to organizers, this year's festival will be focused around the themes of the environment, community, and art.


The festival will include a project in collaboration with Google, as well as several exhibitions in which photographers will select the works of their colleagues.


The Shpilman Institute for Photography will present an integrated project of exhibitions and video screenings, and huge photos with "harsh messages on the boundaries between society and art" will be showcased on the port's buildings.


Some of the exhibitions are free, but tickets should be purchased to see the whole festival. A single entry card costs NIS 39 (about $10), and a family card (a couple and up to three kids) costs NIS 78 ($20).
