IZZY is “the Netflix of Israel” — a streaming platform featuring movies, documentaries, and TV shows made in Israel, for audiences around the world.
We are a team of עולים חדשים who moved to Israel within the last seven years, and we are extremely passionate about putting the magic of Israel on display, through remarkable entertainment and storytelling.
We launched this Call For Entries to grow our database of the top talent in Israel — related to movies, TV shows, and documentaries — both behind and in front of the camera.
And, more importantly, we are planning to invest at least 1 million U.S. dollars in Israel’s struggling culture industry this year, in order to hire as many people from this industry as possible!
If your English is not as good as ours, not to worry — we hire Hebrew, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Russian speakers for both on-camera and off-camera work.
Who is this Call For Entries for?
IZZY is a Netflix-like streaming service that offers a variety of original TV shows, movies, documentaries, podcasts, broadcasts, and music from Israel, on Internet-connected devices. You can watch as much as you want, whenever you want, without a single commercial – all for one low monthly price.
IZZY is for people around the world who want an unprecedented look into Israel’s culture, lifestyle, people, and history — through the best in movies, TV shows, documentaries, and more!
Fall 2020! We’re currently building the technology that will power IZZY, and working with the top production companies to bring you the best in premium entertainment and storytelling, from Israel.
Like any good startup in Israel, venture capital! We also have a pre-order sale happening, which is going very well for us.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, we expected to start issuing contracts, budgets, and payments in June 2020.
The good news is, we are still on pace for this target, but we cannot say for sure until there is more information made available about the pandemic and its effects on day-to-day life, business, etc.
As for IZZY, we are planning to launch the platform on all of the app stores in Fall 2020, with 150 hours of mostly original content, some of which you can view here.
Content is produced in whichever language is most authentic to the title and/or the people in the title, or the language which will make for the best possible production.
We have a professional translation service which will provide subtitles for all of our titles, including English, Hebrew, Spanish, French, Russian, and Arabic — similar to Netflix.
Send them to us through the form below! Feel free to write us in English or Hebrew — whatever is easiest for you!
If you have any questions or feedback, please be in touch! We are based in Tel Aviv and will be happy to speak with you.
