Israel Film Center Stream Expands Catalog With Over A Dozen Additional Titles
Israel Film Center Stream announced today an expansion of its streaming catalog with 15 additional titles added to the platform on Wednesday, July 7. Israel Film Center Stream, an initiative of The Carole Zabar Center for Film at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, is the largest streaming site for Jewish and Israeli films in the U.S.
Israel Film Center Stream has set record numbers since its launch in December 2007 and now expands to meet the demand, with the addition of 15 new titles, including Israeli hits such as Talya Lavie’s Zero Motivation, Yuval Adler’s Bethlehem, and the Berlinale award winner Synonyms, directed by Nadav Lapid. The latest slate of films added to the platform also includes major titles from arthouse distributors Zeitgeist Films and Kino Lorber, including Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story; The Last Resort; and Keep the Change.
“What we are most proud of is not just the quantity, but the quality of the films,” said Isaac Zablocki, Israel Film Center director. “Many of these films have been selected from our exclusive festivals and ongoing, year-round program. The audience knows to trust our taste. When it comes to Israeli and Jewish cinema, there is a lot out there to see and Israel Film Center Stream is the place to see it.”
The latest titles now available on Israel Film Center Stream include Bethlehem; Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story; Colliding Dreams; Farewell Herr Schwarz; Hannah Arendt; Happy Times; Keep the Change; The Kindergarten Teacher; The Last Resort; Rabin, the Last Day; Sophie Scholl: The Final Days; Synonyms; The Tenth Man; Working Woman; and Zero Motivation.
The streaming platform’s catalog features new releases and many hard-to-find Israeli classics. Last year, Israel Film Center Stream added a collection of films from Strand Releasing. Films are available to stream in U.S. territories and are available for 48-hour rentals or through a monthly subscription which allows unlimited access to all films on the site.
