WHY US?

New Love Films is an experienced and dynamic consulting resource for documentary filmmakers. Articles about our films have appeared in many of the top publications in the world including the NY TIMES and the LA TIMES. In SPRING 2009, the IDA’s DOCUMENTARY MAGAZINE, wrote an article about the new successful models of self distribution and chose our team as one of the only three filmmakers for that article. (To read the article, see the PRESS section in this website) We are experienced in all stages of documentary filmmaking from fund raising to distribution to commercial theaters, TV stations world wide, and non-theatrical and educational venues.

 

Award winning director Dan Katzir’s documentaries played on TV stations worldwide including HBO in the US and Channel 4 in the UK among many others.  He has won many awards including a nomination for the Israeli Academy Award and has travelled to many festivals personally to see how international audiences react to his films.  His work is characterized by a coherent narrative story structure which draws a strong audience reaction.  He has helped many filmmakers find the heart of their story so it will be effective in resonating with their audience on an emotional level and not just on an intellectual one.
Acclaimed producer Ravit Markus has worked on dozens of projects in Israel and in the US both for TV and for independent producers. She has worked in all aspects of film production and distribution – from line producing to executive producing and also works as a producer’s representative and distributor.  Regardless if the project is in its early stages of fund raising and pre-production or is complete but needs a marketing and distribution plan – Ravit can help figure out how to get a film completed and distributed for a limited budget.
