Ezra Soiferman

Montreal-based filmmaker and photographer Ezra Soiferman shoots and directs documentaries and photo series about people, places and things that warm hearts, uplift spirits, and frequently provoke thought and laughter.

His works (including "Grass Fed", "Dockside to Bedside: 100 Years of Herzl", "Man of Grease" and "Tree Weeks") have screened or won awards at over 30 film festivals worldwide since 1994, when he graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

Soiferman has produced film festivals, served on festival juries and is the co-founder and director of the Montreal Film Group, a networking group for over 2500 Montreal film and TV industry members, founded in 2004.

His latest film is the Muse Entertainment documentary "Grass Fed" which premiered in late 2015 on the CBC’s Documentary Channel and can be seen on iTunes.

Soiferman’s early 2016 photo project is the acclaimed "Last Game at The Forum" which featured a coffee table book, gallery exhibit and music video about the final Canadiens hockey match played at the Montreal Forum prior to its closing in 1996.

In summer 2016, Ezra became the first Artist in Residence at Tweed, Canada's largest licensed producer of medical cannabis. As part of the year-long photography residency he'll be traveling to create new photo series. The first project Ezra released as part of the Tweed residency is the 'music photeo' "The Walls of Montreal" / "Les Murs de Montréal", a love letter to the vast array of artistic murals throughout his hometown, of which he has photographed more than 1500.
