Established in 2007 to bring Israeli filmmakers closer to interested audiences worldwide, IsraeliFilms and IsraeliDocs introduce a new tool for educators and programmers in Jewish communities, colleges, universities, organizations - anyone who has an interest in bringing Israel to their screen, class or community.
While IsraeliFilms focuses on promoting dramatic feature films made in Israel, IsraeliDocs promotes the exciting documentary filmmaking that has become world renowned for its courage and quality. IsraeliDocs provide an easy, comprehensive, and legal way to purchase rights for the public screenings of hundreds of thought provoking documentaries.
To Programmers and Educators
IsraeliDocs intends to be the number 1 stop for programmers and educators interested in Israel – our history, culture, politics, people, and heritage.
Looking for the best and most recent titles to schedule? We have them. Thinking of founding an Israeli Documentary Film Festival in your federation or congregation? We can help. Looking to enrich Holocaust Memorial Day, Israel Independence Day, Rabin's Memorial Day? We have a vast variety of documentaries to help you create a powerful and emotional event.
You no longer need a large cinema, 35mm projector, or even a professional Beta player to present a film in your community. All that is needed is a DVD player, a projector, and of course legally licensed rights for a film that is perfect for your needs.
Israeli filmmakers are producing excellent films in a variety of genres, winning international prizes,offering fresh perspectives of Israel today. Many of the Israeli filmmakers are certain that there is vast interest for their work worldwide, but are not yet certain of how to reach this potential audience.
IsraeliFilmsandIsraeliDocs intend to bridge this gap fully with the most advanced and convenient tools. You'll find hundreds of documentaries on our website, sorted by categories. Read the synopses, view each title's festivals and screenings list. Trailers are available for on-line preview, and in addition you'll be able to purchase the legal rights for either public or educational screenings in your community.
You can fill a shopping cart with as many titles as you require and an "Israeli Film Festival in a box" will be on it's way to you in your selected screening format.
Who We Are
IsraeliFilms and IsraeliDocs were founded by Dov Gil-Har, an independent Israeli documentary filmmaker and producer who directed Sleeping with the Enemy, Behind Enemy Lines, Shalom Jordan, 10 Days in Gaza and many more.
After years of working with Jewish communities, especially in North America, distributing his own works and representing his films in numerous festivals, Gil-Har identified a need for a convenient tool that provides updated information about Israeli films, along with a convenient way to purchase their rights for various uses .
Who We Represent
IsraeliFilms represents both established production houses and exciting, young independent movie makers.
