There are several online sites where one can find and watch Israeli films and documentaries.

One such site is Ruth Diskin Films. Created in 2001 as a boutique sales company, the site “represents artistically excellent and compelling works that largely address human rights, Jewish content and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” according to the company’s website.

The website offers films in several categories including politics and conflict, women and gender, Jewish life, the Holocaust, and Israeli mosaic. Diskin herself is also a consultant to several Israeli film groups and is a judge at international film festivals.

The website Israeli Films is another online option to obtain movies made about Israel.

The website was created in 2007 by Dov Gil-Har, an Israeli independent documentary filmmaker and producer, to promote films made by Israelis and promote the Jewish culture. Promoting large production companies and those who are producing independent movies, the website also provides “an easy, comprehensive, and legal way to purchase rights for public screenings to hundreds of exciting dramatic features, as well as thought provoking documentaries.”

The movies and films that can be found on Israeli Films range from documentaries to dramas to comedies. The site also offers movies about the Holocaust and Jewish-themed features.

YouTube.com has several Israeli short films and trailers that can be viewed online, including many that have English subtitles.

Cinema International’s website provides a listing of Israeli films with English subtitles that can also be found on YouTube and Netflix. According to the website, Israeli films have garnered the most Oscar nominations than any other country in the Middle East.

Israeli Film Center STREAM “is the most comprehensive site for Israeli films in the U.S., offering year-round promotions and special thematic programs of both new releases and classics,” according to the website.

According to Israel National News, the increasing number of Israeli films selected for film festivals across the globe in recent years “is a reflection of better quality production and rising box-office numbers at both home and abroad.”

"International recognition and the implication of quality that it brings has rocketed Israel's cinema production to the forefront," film critic Meir Schnitzer told AFP, as reported by Arutz Sheva.

"The miracle of Israeli cinema in the last 10 years isn't measured just by the number of films or their public reception, but by what has been a revolution in production quality."
