For all of us international fans!
Just got word of this new online streaming platform that specializes in giving international movies LEGAL access in countries around the globe! They teamed up with a few organizations to give Asian films an international boost and as a fan of Asian cinema I had to give this news a share, especially since their catalogue is quite diverse! There’s a slight fee to watch the movies, but that makes sense when doing things legally (lmao). More information below!
Online film streaming platform FilmDoo is working with Asian Shadows, Stardust Pictures and other distributors to give international releases to a whole host of new Asian films spanning the continent from Japan, China and Korea down to Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
From eccentric comedies and tender coming-of-age films to taut thrillers and poignant dramas exploring important and controversial issues, these films represent an exciting variety of new talent emerging from the continent.
“There are so many great, interesting stories coming out of Asia; so many talented emerging filmmakers coming from this part of the world,” FilmDoo’s Thai cofounder Weerada Sucharitkul comments, “We’re excited to be doing more to showcase this talent and give these unforgettable, diverse films the exposure they deserve.”
FilmDoo has previously collaborated with Third Window, Cine Asia, De Warrenne and other successful Asian film distributors and have released films in multiple regions from renowned Asian directors like Takeshi Kitano and Kim Ki-Duk.
FilmDoo is the leading online film platform redefining the way people discover and watch films around the world. FilmDoo was a UK finalist in the 2015 MassChallenge accelerator programme and was recently featured in Forbes as one of the Top 5 startups to come out of the programme. They have received extensive press coverage in the Guardian, Variety and Screen Daily. FilmDoo is founded by co-founders Weerada Sucharitkul and William Page and was launched at the Cannes Film Festival last year. Their proprietary film distribution technology means that international films can be watched legally from any location around the globe.
