Go2Films – Home for Intriguing Films
What we do?
#thought_provoking #creative #open_mind #hope #humor
Go2Films specializes in distribution, marketing and co-production of top Israeli docs, fiction films and TV series as well as international films with Jewish related content. We have a soft spot for movies which help us understand who we are, where do we come from and where we want to go.
We welcome films that expand our minds and hearts. We work with the filmmakers to design a distribution & marketing strategy tailored specifically for their film, making sure that each film reaches its audiences worldwide.
Over the years, we have developed personal long-term relationships with important buyers, broadcasters, film festivals, educational institutions and digital platforms around the globe.
Films are our #passion and #profession and we keep seeking innovative ways to make our films reach the viewers in the ever-changing world of film distribution.
