Internet streamer MUBI is partnering with the Cannes Film Festival in an effort to bring festival shorts to a global audience. The VOD service, in collaboration with Cannes Court Métrage, is streaming shorts that have run in official competition in years past for the duration of this year’s fest.
Highlights of the engagement include 2013 Camera d’Or Anthony Chen’s 2007 “Ah, Ma,” former Un Certain Regard runner Chloe Robichaud’s “Chef de Meute,” and this year’s Cannes Jury President Jane Campion’s “Peel.” The service, which places a new film available for streaming daily and hosts a film centric social forum, is inviting any filmmaker to submit their film at MUBI’s booth to be run alongside these greats.
“We are delighted to bring these Cannes titles to a global audience,” said MUBI founder and CEO Efe Cakerel. “Short films are the ideal way for the most exclusive festivals in the world to reach audiences wherever they are.”
