Avi Federgreen is a leading producer with over 20 years of experience in the film industry, producer of dozens of films in North America and internationally. As the Founder of Jewish Films On Demand (JVOD), Avi’s goal is to promote and support the incredible mix of Jewish films by connecting the North American audience to films with Jewish content. Avi’s strong appreciation for Jewish arts, music and film led him to create and launch the platform JVOD, as a way to highlight these themes within the context of film. The carefully curated list of films all celebrate Jewish history, heritage and culture both in Israel and within the Diaspora. Avi enjoys seeing the expression of culture through film and wanted to increase the accessibility of films previously not widely available to the North American audiences.
With collaborations with companies such as GoToFilms (Israel), the new platform will provide a place where people can access high quality Jewish films that often don’t get played outside of film festivals, places many people can’t get to.
The platform will host an eclectic mix of all genres and will include documentaries, long-form narratives and short films, with themes that explore religion, refugees, LGBTQ+ community, war, xenophobia and family.
