It must be said that, when it comes to film streaming platforms, there’s a definite bias towards stories about people with superpowers and wearing a latex onesie. It’s a tough prospect if you want to catch up on one of the greats of the classic era, nerd-out on the work of one of the giants of world cinema, or maybe just take a punt at something that looks a little more intriguing and original than another formulaic genre film built around a flavour-of-the-month celebrity star.
Well FilmStruck is here to scratch that sizeable itch. They offer a carefully selected mix of old and new, weird and wonderful, classic and cult, and it’s all packed up together in a single, beautifully designed destination. Their archive is home to a hand-picked collection of the best of Curzon content and The Criterion Collection, along with plenty of films to expand your cinematic horizons. LWLies are excited to announce a partnership with FilmStruck in which we’ll be celebrating some of the great titles on their channel and, in general, stanning hard for the work they do.
So keep your eyes on our magazine, website and social channels for special FilmStruck recommendations and creative activity linked to their special seasons and retrospectives.
