Ron Furman was born on March 11, 1979, in Haifa, Israel. He got involved in the film and television industry at the age of seven when he began his career as an actor in numerous theatrical and television productions, which later inspired him to become a filmmaker. Ron’s early films attributed him with instantaneous recognition in his field, which allowed him to gear his creativity towards working on projects that truly mattered to him (Politics, Religion, Army, Anti-Semitism, Arab-Israeli conflict etc). After some time being second in command at a notable Canadian production company, Ron had decided to spearhead his own ideas by founding Thorn Films Inc in 2003. Making movies is his passion, but making a difference has always been his ultimate goal. Ron is a graduate of the Hollywood Film Institute in Los Angeles and the Broadcasting & Television Program at Seneca College-York University in Toronto, Canada. Aside from filming his own projects Ron currently is serving as Director at the Picture Perfect Film School in Toronto, Canada and the CEO of the Daring Independent Film Festival.
I have been in the industry since 1999.
