I swear this post isn’t an ad, even though it’s going to maybe sound like one. I recently signed up for MUBI, a curated online service that allows you to watch a selection of independent, international and cult classic films. I’m sharing this because I think it’s a cool service and I’m looking forward to it as a way to continue my ongoing film studies.
Rather than the Netflix model of offering hundreds of selections, MUBI only offers 30 films at a time (one new film a day). The curators select and post a film, and then it remains available for 30 days. The selection so far seems really fantastic, and stuff that is unique and not readily available on Netflix (see the screen shot for a sample of some of the current offerings). It also has an app that allows you to watch from an iPad or other devices.
Best part? It’s only $3 a month if you subscribe for a year.
If you’d like to try it out for a month free of charge, you can use this referral and give it a whirl.
