Uplifting Documentary ‘Joe’s Violin’ Nominated for 2017 Oscar Award [WATCH NOW]

The heartfelt documentary ‘Joe’s Violin’ has been nominated for a 2017 Academy Award. The full documentary is available here now on The Violin Channel.

The inspiring heartfelt string documentary ‘Joe’s Violin’ has been nominated for a 2017 ‘Short Documentary’ Academy Award - to be announced in Los Angeles on February 26th.

Directed and produced by Kahane Cooperman and nominated for the ‘Best Documentary, Short Subject’ category, the 24 minute work follows the story of 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Joe Feingold after he donates his treasured violin to a local instrument drive in New York - ultimately changing the life of a schoolgirl from one of the nation’s poorest neighborhoods.

Having premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, the work was awarded the ‘Audience Prize’ at the 2016 Montclair, Milwaukee and Nantucket Film Festivals - and the ‘Grand Jury Prize’ at the 2016 Lighthouse International Film Festival.

The full 24 minute piece available here now on The Violin Channel:
