'Israel: A Home Movie' made it to the finals of the International Federation of Television Archives’ competition, but was dropped because this year’s awards ceremony will take place in Dubai.

The creators of the Israeli documentary "Israel: A Home Movie" were recently informed that their film has been dropped from an international competition for films based on archival footage, because the awards ceremony is to be held in the Arab emirate of Dubai.
