The streaming service Mubi operates more like a repertory cinema than any of its peers: A new movie is introduced to its subscribers every day, and it’s available on the site for the theatrical equivalent of a limited run.
Mubi is one of several first-rate sites that cater to cinephiles, and its mix of current and vintage films, the global scope of the selections, and the truly eclectic array of genres is great. [via The New York Times]
Every day, film curators at Mubi introduce a new film of the day and every day they take one away. There are always 30 hand-picked films to watch or download. From forgotten gems to festival-fresh cinema. From cult classics to award-winning masterpieces. Within the 30 there are specially programmed smaller curations. These include double features, filmmaker retrospectives, spotlights on major film festivals and long running themes. They believe cinema should be viewed on screens of all shapes and sizes. Their curators scour film festivals for the most exciting and original new films, which they release to the big screen with the same care and attention that we give to their curated platform. There is a community aspect where you can rate, review, and discuss films with other Mubi users, as well as read news, interviews, and criticism. It is available for free for film students.
