From the Jerusalem Cinematheque Website | The Jerusalem Cinematheque was established in 1974 by Lia and Vim Van Leer and was first housed in Agron House. Their love for cinema and rich film collection, which they spent years developing, was the foundation for the creation of the Israel Film Archive and the screening of quality films at the Cinematheque.
With the generous support of George Ostrovsky and the ongoing collaboration with then mayor Teddy Kollek, the Cinematheque made its current location at the Ben Hinnom Valley, across the spectacular vistas of the Old City, its permanent home. With four screening halls and the growing film archive, the Cinematheque screens commercial films, Israeli films, films from around the world, and a selection from it archival treasures.
During 2016 we started working on what was to become the largest Drupal project in Israel and one of the world leaders! The work began with a thorough characterization of the website, which included general project characterization, full technical characterization of the website (full content architecture) and preliminary planning of the user experience. The Jerusalem Cinematheque asked for a new, refreshing website with a great user experience and a unique management system suited to the complex needs of content managers. The second stage was a design process, designed by Good Studio, which ultimately led to a pleasing design, special, clean which reflects the large media of the Cinematheque, full events, full information about different films and more.
Then we continued a development process that lasted almost a year. A very complex development process that included a highly complex and challenging content architecture, a lot of tools that improved the content managers' editing experience, complex structures and lots of dedicated codes in writing various components specifically for this project.
Today we are pleased to present a great website and new relationship with another happy customer.
