His works (including "Grass Fed", "Dockside to Bedside: 100 Years of Herzl", "Man of Grease", "Tree Weeks" and "Pressure Drop") 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 2015 on the CBC’s Documentary Channel and can be seen on iTunes. In 2016-2017, Ezra served as the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at Tweed, a division of Canopy Growth, the world's largest vertically-integrated cannabis company. During the residency, he traveled to over a dozen cities shooting documentary photo series and creating short music films, including "The Walls of Montreal", featuring photographs of the murals throughout his hometown. Ezra is currently directing Beyond the Plate featuring Heidi Small, a 20+ episode food web series appearing on the Montreal Gazette's digital platform and other online sites.
