Israeli productions are gaining ground in the international market. "Israel is a unique center of content, talent and creativity, with achievements very similar to those gained in the field of high technology," said Nadav Palti, CEO of Dori Media Group, one of the most prominent Israeli content producers and distributors.
“Also, since Israel is a country of immigrants and with a very cosmopolitan worldview, the potential of its content to travel is greater. We have the ability to develop content having the world in mind since the culture here is western in its affiliation and the flavor is very similar to that the required by the international market,” he added.
Among the titles of Dori Media appealing to the international market is the drama Normal (8x35'), that tells the story of a young man who hits rock bottom and finds his own way to normality in a psychiatric ward.
