UK Jewish Film Festival launches on-demand

Distrify is launching movies from the UK Jewish Film Festival on its on-demand service.

The festival is currently underway, is screening 81 Jewish films at venues throughout the UK.

“Distrify was created as a distribution platform to help filmmakers find audiences and, equally important, to help audiences find films,” says Kobi Shely, the compnay’s head of marketing partnerships.

Distrify will make the movies available, in full, on its on-demand service on a download to own or rent.

Shely said he wants Distrify to expand its work around film festivals. “We want to see this model working with other festivals because helps a festival to capitalise on its brand and audience relationship and extend the value of its curation skills year-round. We see the UK Jewish Film Festival very much as a pioneer in the film festival arena.”
