if the film was bought in israel :
since the film is developed abroad, exportation is permanent. the same rule applies to film bought in israel and send unexposed to the country of the production company's origin.
if the film comes from abroad : since film changes its status, because the negative support is exposed during a shoot, it cannot be regarded as temporary import.
this is why neg. rawstock can't be imported with an ata carnet. however, pending
on the production needs, due to market limitation this can be chnged through
hocus focus films.
if the film is processed in a israeli laboratory during shooting, at the end the positives, negatives and videos are sent back for permanent re-exportation.
if the film is used but not yet developed, re-exportation is again permanent.
for both cases some exportation paperwork must be done with a specialised freight agent.
